Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) announcement for 2023

Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) is an environmental initiative the geocaching community supports. Since 2002, CITO has enabled geocachers to beautify and restore natural and urban spaces. In that time, there have been more than 599,000 logged attendances at nearly 33,000 events where geocachers helped improve the outdoors.

Actions often speak louder than words; from collecting trash to planting trees, and all other kinds of CITO activities, when we CITO, we make our world a better place. We build community with our geocaching neighbors and leave our incredible geocaching gameboard better than how we found it.

This year’s CITO dates are:

CITO 2023, Season 1
Wednesday, March 1 through Wednesday, May 31, 2023

CITO 2023, Season 2
Friday, September 1 through Thursday, November 30, 2023

How can I earn both CITO 2023 souvenirs?

To earn the CITO 2023, Season 1 and the CITO 2023, 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!
