Event description

Description

You like exploring? Then avoid having the squirrels laugh at you, by learning how to not get lost J. A GPS device is one of the best tools for exploring the wilderness safely or to find a target location in the forest… if you know how to use it!

During this workshop, members from Sauvetage Bénévole Outaouais - Ottawa Volunteer Search and Rescue (SBO-OVSAR) will explain how the Global Positioning System works, how it relates to traditional map and compass orienteering, and show you how to use a dedicated GPS unit. Much of what you learn will also be applicable to a modern smart phone for less daunting exploration outings. The workshop includes an indoor presentation and an outdoor practice session.

GPS units will be provided.

This Friends of Gatineau Park activity is for persons aged 13 and older.

Please wear weather appropriate clothing.
