Off Trail: Outdoor Skills for Land Conservation
(09:00 AM - 02:00 PM)

This workshop will give you a chance to learn and practice skills such as map and compass reading, understanding property survey maps, and navigating in sometimes unfamiliar and challenging terrain. You will expand your exploratory horizons and bolster your confidence about off-trail navigation. We will present an indoor orientation to map & compass reading and interpretation, and GPS. Then we’ll head out to a Bear-Paw easement property and put what we’ve learned into practice. We’ll also discuss how and why we monitor our conservation lands, and how you can get involved. Professionals from Bear-Paw Regional Greenways and UNH Cooperative Extension will lead the workshop.


This workshop is open to anyone wanting to learn more about off-trail navigation, and is particularly valuable for those who need to monitor conservation easements.

 

Please bring lunch, plenty of water, and dress for the field.
