Using a compass can be confusing and trying to navigate using a map can be even more so. What even makes a compass work in the first place?
Join Teacher Naturalist, Jessica LaPolt, from the CT Audubon Society, at the Birdhouse Coffee shop to learn about how a compass works, how to use a compass, and how it corresponds to using a map. Simple compasses will be available for use during the program, not to keep, as you look at a topographic map and walk along the trails. You will be going on a short hike during this program, so please wear appropriate attire. Rain or shine. $15 per person and online registration is required.
