Geocaching at New Quarter Park April 13
Join Ann Walters, volunteer and avid geocacher, at New Quarter Park to learn more about the outdoor treasure hunting game called Geocaching on Saturday, April 13, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. All you need to play is a handheld GPS or a GPS-enabled Smartphone and access to the official Geocaching website on the Internet at www.geocaching.com.
Geocachers navigate to specific sets of GPS coordinates and attempt to find the Geocache container hidden at a location. There are about a dozen caches hidden at New Quarter Park and about 60 others located within 5 miles. But that’s not all: geocaches are hidden in nearly 2 million locations worldwide. Geocaching is a great way to see places you wouldn’t normally find. It’s a great activity for families, Individuals, or couples. Kids of all ages love a good treasure hunt!
