SLU Orienteering Course Launch 2017

The permanent St. Lawrence Orienteering Course officially launched Friday, November 3rd! The course begins at the Wachtmeister Field Station, near the Kip Trail, and highlights some of the interesting geologic features in the surrounding forest. Thanks to everyone who came out to test the course, despite wetter than wanted conditions. We enjoyed seeing students and community members share map and compass skills and bond over a shared appreciation for time spent out wandering the woods. Special thanks to the SLU GIS program and student technician Anna Breton for creating the course map, and to Brian Berg for setting up the course.
