Calendar Event

Letterboxing

Date: 3/29/2013
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Location: The Nature Center

Ages 7-13
Knowing how to use a map and compass is a very useful skill. It can be pretty fun too, especially if you put those skills to use trying to find a Letterbox. Similar to geocaching, but without using GPS technology, letterboxes are treasures hidden for you to find using clues, maps and a compass. This program will teach you the skills needed to use the tools of the trade and then allow you to put them to use finding letterboxes at Veteran Acres Park.
Program Fee: $15
