Open Space  Committee - Birchwold Conservation Area

The Wrentham Open Space Committee invites you to walk through the woods, meadows and fields at Birchwold Conservation Area while we refresh our memories on the practical use of map and compass. Doug Williams, director at Mass. Audubon Stony Brook, will lead the walk. We will navigate using the centuries-old methods perfected long before the age of GPSs and smartphones. Doug will show us how to compare the landscape with what we read on our topographic map. Navigating from point to point, we will explore this historic landscape while discussing how to use a map and compass to determine our location and lines of travel. Along the way, we will practice some way-finding tricks like taking advantage of “catching features” and “aiming off” in pursuit of the simplest way to our destination. Bring a compass if you have one. Meet on Sunday, January 28, 10:00 a.m. in the Birchwold parking lot. Walk is scheduled 10:00 a.m. to noon. Dress for the weather! Everyone is invited.
