Whether you're an experienced geocacher or new to this fun sport, you're invited to join us for a unique adventure. Two classes will compete this year: Novice geocachers will search in Explore Park, while Experts will travel to a variety of sites in the county, all using a handheld GPS for guidance.  A limited number of GPS units will be available to those who do not bring their own and a $150 deposit will be required for their use. Deposit can be either a personal check or cash and will be returned upon the safe return of the GPS unit.

Longitudes and latitudes will be given and Novice geocachers will have from 11 am to 3 pm to complete the adventure. Experts have from 10 am to 3 pm. We strongly suggest there be two people per car, (at least one navigator). All participants must return to Explore Park Visitor's Center by 3 PM for a final tallying of scores and prizes. Entry form, pre-registration and day of registration information and further details will be posted on our website.



Admission Fee: *FREE (*A limited number of GPS units will be available to those who do not bring their own and a $150 deposit will be required for their use. Deposit can be either a personal check or cash and will be returned upon the safe return of the GPS unit.)
