The posted coordiantes are the parking/starting coordinates for this Wherigo. The cache is not at these coordinates. You will need to take a short tour of works of art along the Fox River in downtown Green Bay in order to obtain the cache coordinates.
Sculptures have been installed on the river walk along the Fox River in downtown Green Bay as part of the city’s “Life of the River” program, which began in 2002. The theme of Life of the River is a celebration of the historical nature and natural beauty of the Fox River as it flows through the City of Green Bay. The works reflect "historical, natural or manmade elements, or the vitality of the Fox River and the inhabitants affected by it."
This Wherigo cartridge will take you on a short tour of these sculptures, beginning at Admiral Flatley park. After you have visited each of the sculptures and learned a bit about them, you will be provided the coordinates of the cache. The total length of the walk is under a mile, and the entire tour is wheelchair accessible.
The Wherigo cartridge is available via the "Users Web Page" at the top of this page, or here.
WGA Cache of the Month comments:
"Just a very well done Wherigo cache that highlights some very interesting sculptures in downtown Green Bay. Great art, great city, great location, and a great cache."
"Glad to see a WhereIGo cache nominated for cache of the month. This one is well deserved. A great tour of the river and the art work that is along it. An excellent example of a WhereIGo done right!"
"I would like to see more WhereIGo Caches. I think this technology has much to offer. First one I saw nominated. This particular cache is well constructed and seems to work well with all the current equipment."
"I really had a great time with this cache! It was very educational and it brought me to a part of Green Bay that I sometimes forget about."
