Geocaching Adventure in County Parks!

— filed under:

Join WCPARC this summer for the Fourth Annual Washtenaw County Geocaching Adventure! This exciting outdoors event kicks off July 12th with all-new geocaching locations to explore at various WCPARC parks and preserves.

Ready, Set … Cache!!

WCPARC has hidden eight 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 eight 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 Geocaching Adventure pathtag designed specifically for this event.  This year, WCPARC offers a new 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 2014 caches:

New to Geocaching? Need a Refresher?

If you are new to geocaching, please visit http://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.
