A Cache Type with a Science Lesson

Explore a cache type that teaches visitors about the playground all geocachers enjoy — the earth. Each EarthCache takes adventurers to a unique site showcasing geological features. EarthCaches may deliver geocachers to a rare rock formation carved by desert winds, or fissures in the earth’s surface created by underground water. There’s never a cache container at an EarthCache. Rather, geocachers must discover and report a geoscience lesson learned at the site.

You can learn more about EarthCaching this September in the U.S. The 1st International EarthCache Event is on September 2, in Maine. It’s expected to reach Mega-Event status. Join hundreds of EarthCaching faithful from around the world at the event.
