The Junior Gardener's Club will host "Geo-caching: Searching for Hidden Treasure" on Saturday July 9th at 10 a.m. in the Children's Garden.
Learn about coordinates and gps units in this fun treasure hunt program. Caches will be scattered around the garden for Club members to find. We will begin our program with an introduction to geo-caching and using gps...then we will break into groups to use what we have learned and search for caches!
GPS units will be available but if you have one of your own, feel free to bring it.
Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.
