Congratulations to OHMIC. One comment shows how OHMIC commitment to the environment is showcased in his geocaching, “My vote is for OHMIC. He has hosted many training sessions for new cachers and he has also organized numerous caching events. OHMIC’s annual Cache the Marsh event is a favourite of new and seasoned cachers alike, and is renowned around Manitoba. Not only is OHMIC knowledgeable about wildlife, ecosystems, waterfowl and the environment, he also puts forth a huge effort to incorporate opportunities for learning into his caches and the events that he organizes and hosts.”
OHMIC has been geocaching since 2003. OHMIC will receive the earned, never for sale, collector’s edition Featured Geocacher of the Month Geocoin, along with Featured Geocacher of the Month hat and a certificate acknowledging his contribution, signed by two of the founders of Geocaching.com.
