Geocache Description:

Hike one third mile to the northern side of the 1800 acre Creamer's Field Migratory Waterfowl Refuge and see the Ducks Unlimited ponds, beaver, water lilies, waterfowl, moose, fox, great horned owls, and other wildlife. The refuge is is under the jurisdiction of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game - Division of Wildlife Conservation.


This is a special cache full of caches and is the result of a team effort by PedalPushin and the Ladybug Kids. Like a nearby nest of chicks, the large ammo can contains more than a dozen different cache containers ranging in size from a smaller ammo can to a nano container, ready to spread their wings. Please take a container, stock it with swag and a logbook (many already have log books and writing utensils), and hide it for other local cachers to find. Taking and hiding a cache is of course optional. If you don't wish to do this please treat it like any other cache. There are also some trade items for young cachers.

You can download a map of the mushing trails maintained by the Alaska Dog Mushers' Association (ADMA) to help you maintain your bearings near the cache location since your route will cross the mushing trails twice.  The Creamer's Field trails and the mushing trails are multi-use trails used by skiers, skijorers, mushers, runners, snowshoers, hikers, mountain bikers, and people on snowmobiles.  If you are on foot or skis and you are approached by a dog team, step off to the side of the trail and stand quietly to let the team go by.  A schedule of dog races is usually listed in the Fairbanks Daily News Miner "Sports Slate" and the ADMA website and you are asked not to access the mushing trails during 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on race days.  Dogs are welcome on the Refuge, but they must be leashed in compliance with the Fairbanks North Star Borough regulations.  DO NOT let your dog(s) run loose during any season because they can be a hazard to dog teams in the winter, migratory birds in the summer and moose during all seasons.

Bow hunting for moose (September 1-November 27) and bird hunting (September 1-December 16) are allowed in the refuge, so be sure to be seen and heard if you look for this cache during hunting season.
