This is a beginner’s class for the fun hobby of geocaching. We’ll learn the basic terminology and how to use a GPS in a short introduction, and then set out to look for geocaches around the Arboretum for the remainder of the time. For those who like a challenge, we will have Garmin GPS units available for your use, but if you have a smart phone, there are several Geocaching apps you can download that are very easy to use. Recommended smartphone apps are Geocaching by Groundspeak or c:geo. It is helpful if you set up a profile on Geocaching.com before the class.
Class schedule: Half an hour in the classroom and an hour and a half hiking the Arboretum looking for geocaches. Bring your water bottles, hats, sunscreen and sense of adventure! This event is rain or shine so dress for the weather and walking through the woods.
