National park wraps up winter workshops with GPS instruction

Saturday, March 19 at 10 a.m. — WOODSTOCK — Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park hosts its final Woodland Working Workshop of the winter, Using Global Positioning System (GPS) in the Forest 101, on Saturday, March 19 at 10 a.m.

Point A to Point B to Point D—learn how to navigate through your landscape and forest with Adam Kozlowski, National Park Service Data Manager/Biologist for the Northeast Temperate Network. He will lead a discussion on how GPS works, including coordinate systems and other associated terminology, and explain the uses and limitations of GPS. Go outside to solidify these new skills and explore with a scavenger hunt and other fun games. This workshop will be inside and outdoors, rain or shine. Dress appropriately for outdoor weather and bring your own GPS unit, as well as a snack and water.

The program is free. It runs from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. To learn more visit www.nps.gov/mabi/index.htm or call 802-457-3368 ext 17.
