What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is essentially a real-life treasure hunt that uses GPS enabled devices. Using the geocaching app, participants navigate to set GPS coordinates to track down a geocache (container) hidden at that location.
Rules of geocaching:
1). If you take something from a cache, leave something of equal or greater value.
2). Write about your find in the cache logbook.
3). Log your experience at geocaching.com

If you’re new to Geocaching, a great place to start is with an Adventure Lab! These do not require a physical container, but the app gives you clues and coordinates to find locations around the community. When you’re close enough, you will get a question prompt about what you found. It’s a really fun introduction to the Geocaching space and great for the whole family.
A Pathtag is a custom collectible item that is popular in the recreational hobby of geocaching.
Proceeds go towards maintenance and future geocaching-related initiatives.
