Map & Compass Orienteering
August 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
With global positioning systems and the internet to rely on, it is easy to forget some of the basics such as how to properly read a map and use a compass. This event will provide an overview of basic orienteering followed by a scavenger hunt that gives participants a chance to put their newly learned skills to the test!
This event will be co-hosted with Backus Heritage Conservation Area. Nicole Petker, an Ontario Certified Teacher and currently the Outdoor Educator, loves working with all ages to share her knowledge of our diverse habitats and the local plants and animals that call this amazing place home.
