Maps & Technology

11:00 am to 03:00 pm
Hoosier National Forest

If you like to explore the outdoors and have an interest in technology, this program is for you! U.S. Forest Service staff will be at Tipsaw Lake Recreation Area from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. central time and Hickory Ridge Lookout Tower from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. eastern time on Friday, July 27, to share information about National Forest System lands and demonstrate some ways that technology can assist you in exploring those lands. Stop by and chat with Hoosier National Forest staff about what maps are available and how to get them, both printed and digital. You can also bring your favorite electronic device, such as a smart phone, tablet or laptop, and learn how to use digital map products to enhance your outdoor activities and give you peace of mind about reducing your risk of getting lost. After the demonstration, you can use your new found knowledge to explore the trails in the surrounding areas. This activity is part of the U.S. Forest Service’s “It’s All Yours” campaign, an effort to connect all Americans to their national forests and grasslands. #ItsAllYours
