Each participant will receive an air photograph and learn how to “read it” by interpreting the subtle differences between various shapes, tones and textures.

During a hike, field centre staff will aid learners in identifying the various habitats and vegetation types, ensuring that the students are able to extrapolate information for areas that are not actually visited on the hike.

After returning to the field centre, learners will transfer data taken during the hike to a base line drawing, effectively creating their own map.
