Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) Announcement for 2024

verb [ˈsē ˈtō]
To repair, restore, or improve your surroundings, both natural and built.

Cache In Trash Out® (CITO) is an opportunity for geocachers to beautify and restore natural and urban spaces. Since 2002, more than 675,000 geocachers logged attendances at over 37,000 CITO Events that 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 2024, Season 1
Friday, March 1 through Friday, May 31, 2024

CITO 2024, Season 2
Sunday, September 1 through Saturday, November 30, 2024

Attend or host any CITO Event to earn the CITO 2024, Season 1 and the CITO 2024, Season 2 souvenirs.

Only one souvenir is available per season. However, feel free to attend or host as many CITO Events throughout the year as you wish!
