    Lake Mary Event Cancelled
    Rangers from the Coconino National Forest conducted an impact survey and determined that the area we planned to use for our Lake Mary event is now home to several nesting pairs of endangered spotted owls. Due to the sensitivity of the habitat, we are unable to get a permit to use the area for orienteering. We apologize to anyone who was looking forward to some navigation fun in the cool mountains near Flagstaff. We promise we have some fun events starting again in the fall.

Orienteering dates back to the end of 19th century. The first competition took place in 1897 in Bergen (Norway), but it became more popular (especially in the Scandinavian countries) after the 1st world war. In 1961 the International Orienteering Federation was Created. Orienteering is a sport which is growing rapidly in the U.S.  (US Orienteering Federation ) and Canada. Orienteerers use topographical maps and compass to plan cross-country routes, and then use a variety of techniques to travel the route they have planned.

There are Orienteering activities/Competitions for people of all ages, at all levels of skill and fitness. Our goal is to provide activities and services to those individuals or organizations that will help them enjoy the outdoors more. If you are looking for fun new and different ways to enjoy the outdoors or if you think that we could be of service to you, please contact us.
