Outdoor Safety and Introduction to Basic Map & Compass November 19, 2022

Saturday November 19, 2022 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

This new and exciting BCWF 4-hour women’s workshop will help participants establish basic critical outdoor safety and navigation skills for being in the outdoors! This workshop will take place at the beautiful Malcolm Knapp Research Forest in Maple Ridge, BC and will include some lecture and hands-on exercises to put skills into practice.

The first half of the workshop is in lecture format and will focus on basic outdoor safety (assessing, trip plan, the essentials, gear, and a day pack demo/display). The second half of the workshop is an introduction to basic map and compass navigation; this includes map reading, the parts and pieces of a compass and how to use both. Participants will then put these newly learned skills into practice with group exercises in a safe, professionally monitored outdoor space!

Participants must be 19 years of age or older.
