Geocaching Adventure in County Parks!
Join WCPARC this summer for the Fifth Annual Washtenaw County Geocaching Adventure! This exciting outdoors event kicks off August 21 with all-new geocaching locations to explore at various WCPARC parks and preserves.
Ready, Set … Cache!!
WCPARC has hidden nine brand-new, family-friendly caches in select parks and preserves all over Washtenaw County. Each cache container will feature two code words that geocachers must note. Once all nine Geocaching Adventure caches have been found, a geocacher submits the list of code words to WCPARC as proof of successful completion.
All cachers who successfully find all Geocaching Adventure locations and submit the correct code words will receive a Washtenaw County Parks Geocaching Adventure pathtag. WCPARC offers a challenge: the first geocacher to complete the entire series — including finding the special Challenge Cache — and correctly submit the list of code words plus a photo of the Challenge Cache will receive a special “First to Find” prize.
The following is a list of the geocache locations and numbers for the 2015 caches:

Once you have completed the Fifth Annual Geocaching Adventure, please submit your list of code words to Peter Sanderson (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through www.geocaching.com for further instructions on how to receive your commemorative pathtag.
New to Geocaching? Need a Refresher?
If you are new to geocaching, please visit www.geocaching.com and sign up for a free membership. The membership will allow you to participate in the WCPARC Geocaching Adventure. The www.geocaching.com website provides geocachers with all they need to know in order to begin searching for caches.
The only supplies required to begin searching are GPS handheld unit or a Smart Phone equipped with a geocaching application and a great sense of adventure. To find one of our caches, simply type its geocaching code number (e.g. GC2X4BH) into the search field on www.geocaching.com. From there you'll be guided to a web page specifically created for that cache. The page will include a description of the Geocaching Adventure, a short description of the park or preserve in which you'll find the cache, a hint (if you need it) to more easily find the cache, and the coordinates at which the cache is located.
