Even though Geauga Park District has been posting new geocache coordinates in each of its quarterly newsletters, participants have been clamoring for more.
Ask and ye shall receive! Now each season will also feature its own Geocache Day, like going on four treasure hunts at four different parks in a single day, with chances to win prizes for your efforts.
What: Geocache Day: Winter
When: Saturday, March 9 – 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Where: Swine Creek Reservation, Lodge, 16004 Hayes Road, Middlefield Township
Geocaching is an up-and-coming challenge activity that gets you outside using your GPS to help locate hidden caches. Seasonal Geocache Days will provide even more fun and practice with your GPS, as well as the opportunity to explore even more parks.
Upon registration – registration required for four-park winter cache extravaganza by phone at 440-279-0894 – you’ll be assigned a card, such as a King of Clubs, that you’ll need to retrieve from each of the caches. Your quest can begin any time during posted hours, but must end at Swine Creek Lodge between 1 and 4 p.m.
Four cards tell us you located all four hiding spots and earn you four chances to win prizes. If your schedule doesn’t allow you to hit all four parks, earn a ticket for each card you turn in by 4 p.m.
A complete set of instructions will be posted beginning March 1 on the Bulletin Board of Geauga Park District. Anyone school age or older is welcome to participate in this free, family-friendly activity. With questions, call 440-286-9516.
