Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) announcement for 2022

Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) is an environmental initiative supported by the geocaching community. Since 2002, CITO has enabled geocachers to beautify and restore natural and urban spaces. In that time, there have been more than 536,000 logged attendances at nearly 29,000 events where geocachers helped improve the outdoors.

Actions often speak louder than words. By participating in a CITO Event, whether by collecting trash, planting trees, or crafting new homes for pollinators, we make our world a better place. Each CITO we attend is a testament to care: care for others, our communities, and our planet.

CITO Events can be a safe, socially-distant way to gather that adheres to your local laws and health guidance for outdoor activities. As with all outdoor activities, please follow the most current regulations from public health authorities.

This year’s CITO dates are:

CITO 2022, Season 1
Tuesday, March 1 through Tuesday, May 31, 2022

CITO 2022, Season 2
Thursday, September 1 through Wednesday, November 30, 2022

How can I earn both CITO 2022 souvenirs?

To earn the CITO 2022, Season 1 and the CITO 2022, Season 2 souvenirs:

  • Attend or host any CITO Event during each of the two seasons.
  • Only one souvenir is available per season. However, feel free to attend or host as many CITO Events throughout the year as you wish.
