Mount Harris after the leaves have fallen


Our map reading classes have only one more session on Mount Harris before the November deer season starts. We won't go into the woods, except right next to campus, next month. Too dangerous.

We'll be back, depending on how much snow, in December, for their final exams, a practical, in the woods, rain or shine.

Trainee Rangers and Wardens in the woods




Introduction to Conservation Law Enforcement is the first class in the Conservation Law Enforcement degree program. It has a "lab", which is really a land navigation training: Map, compass, and GPS, which I teach.

I love the October sessions on Mount Harris. Being "on the hill" with the students is good for my immortal soul. Watching students get totally and utterly lost in the woods makes me laugh.

These guys aren't lost. They found their point, the hidden overlook from Mount Harris to Howe's Pond.

For a fee, you can have the grid reference.
