A free Geocaching 101 seminar will be taught by members of the Maryland Geocaching Society, from 9 to 10 a.m. on October 8. The seminar, hosted by New Germany State Park, will be held at the New Germany Lake House.
“There are a number of approved geocaches hidden in the park,” said Ranger Erin Thomas of New Germany State Park. “If you’re new to the game, this is a great place to get started.”
Geocaching is a world-wide treasure-hunting game in which participants use GPS units to locate ‘geocaches,’ which are containers that usually hold a logbook and other items.
Upon locating a geocache, participants are encouraged to take an item from the container and replace it with something of equal or greater value.
A limited number of GPS units will be available for loan during the class. For more information, contact 301-895-5453 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
