Have you ever wanted to use your phone or a GPS unit to navigate in the outdoors and collect information from the trails you’ve actually walked? Join Stephanie Williams to discover the tools and tips needed to help guide you to landmarks and create simple maps of where you have traveled. I will show you the apps I use on my iPhone and Android mobile phone to track my position in the field and how to use a handheld Garmin GPS unit to collect information. We will talk about the basics of what is GPS and people can ask questions before we start the hike. After talking about what tools to use, we will go downhill on the Sedge Hill Trail, cross the creek to the Henry Hollow Loop headed south along the Creekside Trail, continue uphill to the Ridgetop Trail which is 2.1 miles there and 2.1 miles back, returning to the long side of Henry Hollow Loop, cross the creek again and uphill to the Nature Center for a total of 6.6 miles. Please be prepared for this adventure with sturdy boots, water, snacks, and clothing for the season. We will meet in the Beaman Park Nature Center parking lot and I will provide the people that register with the apps to download before the hike if they want to use the GPS on their phones during the hike.
