Orienteering 2024

Apr 27, 2024 1:00PM—3:30PM


Jug Bay Wetland Sanctuary - Visitor Center 1361 Wrighton Road Lothian, MD 20711

Cost $10.00


Join experienced orienteer and Jug Bay volunteer, Dave Linthicum, in a fun, hands-on all-outdoors experience to learn “old school” orienteering skills for finding your way in the forest. In this era of “Hey Siri, Open Maps” and GPS – smart phone navigation and compass apps, park rangers are reporting more lost hikers than ever and serious atrophy in the “old time” skills. Easy-to-use color maps will be provided, as will compasses if you don’t bring one. We will hike for about 1.5 miles, sometimes on uneven ground. Dress for the weather as you will be outside for the entire program. (Contact DaveLinthicum@earthlink.net about other orienteering events.) Minimum of 6 – maximum of 15 participants. Ages 15 and up. Under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Fee: $10 pp. No refunds for participant cancellations. To register go to www.jugbay.org Event Calendar and click on the event.
