What is geocaching?

Put simply, it's a high-tech treasure hunt. Players hide containers, called "caches" or "geocaches," outdoors and then share the coordinates. Then, other players seek them out using GPS navigation devices. Its fun, challenging, and encourages people to get outside and enjoy the parks & trails.

Come prepared to be both inside and outside. Stacey Snyder will explain Geocaching after which we will actually go out and try it ourselves!  There are a few caches in Readlyn and several on the trail.  We will caravan over to the trail to save time.

 

And, btw, if you have any question about the popularity of geocaching, there are over 1,396,413 active geocaches around the world and that number grows daily.
