Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) will host a navigation workshop called Map & Compass – The Basics at Lone Pine State Park on March 24th from 10am to 12pm.

No matter what you like to do outside, this workshop is for you.  Hiking, hunting, geocaching, kayaking, bird watching; any outdoors person can find this class useful. This navigation workshop is geared toward beginners and will teach the basic techniques of orienteering with a map and compass.  Bring a compass if you have one, otherwise the park has a limited number to share.  Please wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather as at least half of the workshop will be spent outside.

Online registration through Lone Pine State Park’s Facebook or Eventbrite is required.
