TOPO TALK – The Language of Topographic Maps
September 30, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Explore the world of topographic maps. They tell us a lot about the land around us.
As most of you readers know, a ‘topo’ map shows the shape of the Earth’s surface with contour lines. These lines make it possible to measure the height of mountains and steepness of slopes – great information for anyone planning a hike or a fishing outing.
This is an informal gathering (not a lecture) for folks who enjoy reading and following maps – topographic maps in particular. Geared toward folks with some topo map reading experience but beginners welcome. We will try to curb our enthusiasm and teach you the basics!
Bring a favorite trail or fishing map with topo features to share. Show others a particular map feature you like – or just come and listen!
Light refreshments will be served.
