Geocache Program

If you want an exciting new hobby that allows you to combine your love of technology with nature and exploration, geocaching is for you!

Basically, geocaching is a world-wide scavenger hunt using GPS technology. Geocaching is great for people of all ages and abilities. There are caches hidden all over the world in cities and forests and everything in between. The most recent statistics indicate that there are over 3 million active caches worldwide!

NOTE: We remove our Geocaches in late fall and put them back in early spring.
