9:00 AM at Tradition Lake Shelter near West Tiger 3 Trailhead
This hands-on field training day, to be held in the Tradition Lake area of Tiger Mountain State Park, will focus on skills and practice to become confident reading a topographic map against the features of the terrain around you, get important information from a compass and altimeter, and maintain a steady awareness of where you are as well as how to find yourself if you get temporarily misplaced. Initial priority for registration will be given to hike and backpack leaders; remaining spaces will be open to members as space allows.
