Sunday, October 15th @ 1:00pm

Throughout time, humans have used different techniques to navigate their surroundings and find a sense of place. These are still useful skills in case your GPS loses its signal! Join IAIS Educator and Ecologist Susan Scherf for an interactive workshop in which participants will learn various methods for finding directions, including traditional indigenous techniques as well as reading a map and compass. Practice these skills by completing an orienteering scavenger hunt on our museum’s property, which can look particularly stunning during autumn months.
Please note: the majority of this program will be held outside and some of the terrain will be uneven. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy shoes.

Space is limited and pre-registration is requested. Please visit our website to register online. Questions? Please call (860) 868-0518 or email [email protected]. Price of Participation: $10 for Non-Members, $5 for IAIS Members.
