Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants use a GPS device to navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates where a cache is hidden. After an introduction to geocaching and the GPS device, we'll head out and geocache around the Park. Plan on walking 2+ miles so wear comfortable walking shoes and bring water.
For all ages. Families and individuals welcome. Minors must be accompanied by a participating adult.
Recommended for ages 8+, but all are welcome!
