Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which

or mobile device to hide and seek containers called
"geocaches" or "caches" at specific locations marked by
coordinates all over the world. Come out to this brief
presentation where a local cacher will share with you
some of the basics to begin your own adventure.
Ag Heritage Park is a geocache location!
