Get ready to rock — International EarthCache celebration rolls during October. On Saturday, October 13, and Sunday, October 14, 2018, earn a new souvenir by getting outside, finding and then logging an EarthCache!

EarthCaches don’t have physical containers, but instead, bring you to a unique location and teach you a geological science lesson. Check out these ten stunning EarthCaches from around the world for inspiration.

During the International EarthCache Day celebration, this special geocache type will be available to all members in the Geocaching® app.* The app makes finding and logging EarthCaches easy. Just send your answers to the geocache owner via Message Center!
