Landerites Practice Old School Wilderness Skills With New Orienteering Club

  • Local Champion: Speed Goat Orienteering
  • Date Funded: April 24, 2023
  • Grant Amount: $4,037

Lander locals and visitors alike explore the vast wilderness areas surrounding town, and people often rely on electronic technology to help them navigate. However, when that technology fails, few people know how to use the old-fashioned map and compass to get themselves out of harm’s way. To help address this problem, a group of locals established the Speed Goat Orienteering club to teach residents of all ages how to effectively use key tools in the backcountry. They’ll begin by hosting easily accessible activities in town—including navigation courses at City Park and the high school—before moving into more difficult terrain over the next year. Funding from the LOR Foundation was used to purchase supplies for the orienteering clinics.

This project was fiscally sponsored by the Lander Community Foundation
