Ready to upgrade your map-reading abilities? If you’ve ever been confounded by compasses, if you don’t know what “orient your map” means, or if you would really like it if that “topo map” looked a bit less like an abstract painting — this program is for you! Learn how to read a topographic map by constructing a 3D model and then compare the map features with land features while using a compass.

RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 10 THROUGH ADULT.

FEE: $10/PERSON. ADVANCE REGISTRATION REQUIRED BY JAN. 24.
