Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called "geocaches" or "caches"). Go to www.geocaching.com/about to learn more about geocaching.

Five Rivers MetroParks is excited to host geocaches. Conservation is the founding principle of Five Rivers MetroParks with a goal to connect people to nature through Education and Recreation. Geocaches play a valuable role in motivating and inspiring people to get active and take a hike in their MetroParks while experiencing this family friendly activity.
Practice "Cache In Trash Out"
While out geocaching, bring a bag with you to pick up trash along the way. Cache In Trash Out is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Since 2002, geocachers have been dedicated to cleaning up parks and other cache-friendly places around the world. Through these volunteer efforts, we help preserve the natural beauty of our outdoor resources!
Annually, geocachers have an opportunity to participate in coordinated worldwide clean-up efforts. Geocachers host clean-up events in their local area on the same day or weekend as other geocachers around the world. Together, we make an enormous positive impact. Did we mention that we also have a bit of fun while we are at it?
