DAYTON, Nev.– Each year people become lost, stranded or worse in the outdoors. This program will introduce you to the GPS (Global Positioning Systems) and will explore what GPS is, how it works and how it can be used to navigate in the outdoors.
This free program will be held on August 16 from 9 a.m. to noon at Dayton State Park.
A limited number of handheld GPS units will be available for the program, so participants are encouraged to bring their own GPS unit.
Please call 687-5678 to reserve a space. Everyone will meet in at the group pavilion.
Dayton State Park is located in the town of Dayton, one of Nevada’s very earliest Comstock settlements. The Carson River flows through the park and offers fishing and bird watching. The Rock Point Mill, built in 1861, was once used to process rich silver ore from nearby Virginia City—remnants of the mill are still visible within the park. Picnicking, camping, hiking and group use facilities are available. Dayton State Park is located on U.S. 50, 12 miles east of Carson City.
