Learn field skills for boundary and corridor monitoring: surveying and reporting, reading relevant maps, dealing with land ownership issues, and recognizing land encroachments and illegal use. The course has no prerequisite other than hiking experience and a willingness to travel away from established trails. Morning instruction is an outdoor classroom at the RPH shelter, followed by afternoon field experience on the nearby Appalachian Trail boundary. Dress for the weather and for hiking off-trail, and bring lunch and water.
