Geocaching replaces the parchment map with a Global Positioning Systems (GPS) unit to engage in a modern day treasure hunt. A GPS unit is a hand-held device that communicates with satellites to identify its unique place on earth.
A geocacher places a cache at a particular spot, posts the coordinates on a website and the game begins! Caches contain a logbook and often they have small gifts. But if you take something from the cache, you have to leave something in the cache.
The Geocaching Special Event coincides with National Public Lands Day, the largest hands-on volunteer day that seeks to improve and enhance all of America’s public lands.
