GPS class Thursday

KINGMAN - The Arizona Game and Fish Department's Kingman office will present a class at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 15 on using global positioning systems. The free class is offered at the Mohave County Library, 3269 Burbank St.

GPS has played a vital role in modern wildlife management and can serve as entertainment for those interested in geocaching. Janice Stroud, habitat specialist at the Kingman office, will conduct the presentation.

"For those who have never used a GPS, this is going to be a class on the basics," said Zen Mocarski, public information officer for the Game and Fish Kingman office. "There will be a short presentation followed by some hands-on instruction as participants will search the library area for hidden 'treasures' using GPS units."

Mocarski said the class should be good for people of all ages and Game and Fish will bring GPS units for those who do not have one.

The two remaining Summer Series topics are Captures and Transplants on Aug. 5 and Invasive Species on Aug. 19.
