How Geocaching Works
The Gilbertson Nature Center staff has placed this small cache as a family friendly way to encourage people to come out and explore the Gilbertson Conservation Education Area.
This cache has a Norwegian Name in honor of all the Norwegian’s everywhere.
If the English Name were use it would give the location of this small light blue topped peanut butter jar away to easily.
If you want a hint, grab a Norwegian / English translation dictionary or check the hints, but spoilers it is.
If you do not want to use the hint than follow your GPS to find this easy park, short walk and family friendly cache.

Just stand still and enjoy the sounds of nature around you, especially the “birds”.
