Description

Survive to Thrive: Orienteering Workshop

November 2 (Friday Evening Presentation and Discussion)

November 3 (Saturday hike to cover, in the field, everything presented Friday night)

Join David Neils from Wild Nature Media (www.wildnaturemedia.com) and leverage a lifetime of backcountry experience, primarily navigating his way off-trail in all seasons and terrain. Learn how to transition from surviving to thriving in the outdoors with confidence. This orienteering class is a great place to start, knowing how to create a route and follow it with confidence, on and off trail. You'll also learn how to avoid losing your route and what to do when you feel lost.

Number of Participants: 10 minimum, 15 maximum

Cost: $110 per person, $10 goes to support Nonprofit Environmental Education programs at the High Plains Environmental Center.

Equipment required:

November 2: Friday evening presentation on using a map, compass, and GPS app successfully, route planning, on trail, off trail from 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

November 3: Saturday hike at Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch, 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m., practicing in the field in marked and unmarked terrain.

Everything that's covered Friday night will be experienced on the ground on Saturday, a great combination!

This course is designed to teach students to navigate the backcountry with confidence. Students will learn these skills:

  • Become skilled in topographic map reading, including paper and electronic maps.
  • Gain compass, altimeter, and basic GPS skills
  • Learn to plan your intended routes before you go
  • Learn to travel in unmarked terrain
  • Learn what to do when you "feel" lost
  • With confidence, move from surviving to thriving in the outdoors
