Orienteering (shameless plug)

Calling all intrepid explorers of the wilds of Duluth...

Befuddled by maps and confused by compasses? Learn how to find your way in the great outdoors and protect yourself from getting lost. I am teaching an Orienteering class this spring through the Duluth Public Schools' Community Education Program. The class is open to everyone and anyone, all skill levels, though it will be tailored for the beginner/novice. I will be giving the class at Lincoln Park School May 7 & 14, 6-8 PM, and again at Central High School June 9 & 16, 6-8 PM. We'll cover the basics of map-and-compass navigation (no GPS!) and do some fun games and activities. The first class of each session will be all indoors; during the second period we'll go outside, so wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather. Bring your own compass if you have one.

The cost for the class is only $10. Register through the Community Ed Program website, here for the May class (register by May 1st!). Registration for the June class isn't available yet, but should be soon.
