Compass Course

What would you do if you got lost and only had a compass?  Have you got a compass and do not know what direction to go?  Join a park ranger at 10:00 am for discussion on all the Cardinal points of using a compass.  Participants will use the skills on a compass course.  If you make it through the course your bearings will surely be greased!  Compasses will be provided.  Space is limited, so please call the park office at (910) 588-4550 to reserve your spot or for questions.
