Geocache 101 Clinic

Here's your chance to get in on world-wide FUN!!

There’s a treasure hunt going on all around the world that combines technology with nature! Come learn how to geocache with an experienced geocacher and get in on the fun! The workshop starts at 1:00pm and will conclude at 4:00pm.  Open to ages 8 and above; participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or guardian; no pets please.

This is a classroom-style program that also includes going out and locating caches hidden within the Natural Area. Learn how easy it is to get started using your own smart phone or GPS unit. GPS units will be available for those who don’t yet have one.

This program is limited to the first 20 who sign up, so reservations are required!  Reserve your spot online at https://friendsofgovernmentcanyon.org/events?view=calendar&month=02-2023 

Registration opens on Saturday two weeks prior to the event and closes at noon the Thursday before the event. Sorry, no group reservations.
