International EarthCache Day is October 11
On October 11, you can earn a new souvenir for celebrating the geocaching game board. What’s that, you ask? The whole entire Earth!* All you have to do is go out and find an EarthCache on International EarthCache Day.
EarthCaches don’t have physical containers, but instead bring you to a unique location and teach you an earth science lesson. To make the find, you’ll have to check the EarthCache’s description and answer questions based on where you are.
If you’re using the free Geocaching Intro App, finding and logging an EarthCache is easy. You can just send your answers to the cache owner via Message Center. Visit the search page to find an EarthCache near you.
