Geocaching 101

Presented by DeKalb County Recreation, Parks, and Cultural Affairs

Hidden treasure boxes in the woods? Sign me up! Geocaching is a treasure-hunting game in which participants use GPS technology to find containers called "caches" at specific locations marked by coordinates all over the world. Join us for this session to learn all about how geocaching works and then set out to find more than 10 geocaches at Mason Mill Park. Along the way, you are invited to explore the park, learn to use latitude & longitude, and find hidden caches containing science facts about the park.
Meet Ranger Jonah at the PATH Trailhead.

COVID Considerations

Because the program is 100% outdoors, we do not require masking, but ask participants to go out of their way to respect and care for each other. This means wearing a mask if you find yourself closer than 6 ft from another participant, staying in your own family group, and keeping appropriate distance from others. Hand sanitizer is available from the program leader if participants want it.
As with all ASF events, we ask you to take care of yourself and your community. Stay home if you feel ill, get vaccinated and mask up when in close proximity to others!
