Make sure you have the right gear for your next adventure! On the SECOND WEDNESDAY of every OTHER month, join us and Team Green Adventures to learn about the latest trends in outdoor gear. After the workshop, we'll draw a door prize winner for $50 Gift Card to Cumberland Transit.

On October 12, we will cover all the basics you'll need to know including:

Topographic maps vs. contour maps
How to read maps (plus some activities to test your skills)
GPS Coordinates & what they mean
How GPS devices work & how to use them
How to use a compass (plus some compass activities to test your skills)

Feel free to ask questions throughout. Registers will be open late, so feel free to arrive early or stay late to browse the racks. Team Green Members can enjoy 10% off non-sales items when you show your membership card.
