This course will equip participants with the necessary skills to remain effectively "lost-proof" in nearly any wilderness setting. Participants will learn to interpret maps to tell stories about a variety of landscapes, as well as using a compass as a tool to stay oriented and find their way. With Danny Frank as our guide, we'll have a morning classroom session to learn and practice skills, followed by an afternoon of orienteering in the field. Get ready for a fast-paced, fun and adventuresome day in the foothills of the Wallowa Mountains.

READING THE LANDSCAPE Saturday, July 8, 2018
Prairie, Mountain, Canyon:
Reading the Landscape of Wallowa County
In this one-day primer, local photographer & biologist, Kendrick Moholt, will share his deep knowledge of the history, geology & ecology of Wallowa County. In this jam-packed day, we'll begin in the Wallowa Mountains, exploring the top of Mt. Howard, spend the afternoon on the Zumwalt Prairie, then end the day at Buckhorn Overlook, peering down into the depths of Hells Canyon. This will be an energetic class for the deeply curious at heart; perfect for those who want to see more when they wander.
