Inside the cover of each Geocache you will find two words. These are to be placed on the appropriate spaces of a crossword puzzle found on the Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2010 Brochure found here. We will be holding a geocachers picnic at Willow Metropark on September 11th. Watch the Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2010 Picnic Page for more details.
The cache is located less than 30 feet from the trail so bushwhacking further than that is not necessary and is discouraged to reduce impact on the environment.
The Oakwoods Nature Center has been developing a field as a Monarch Waystation. Monarch Waystations are places that provide resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations and sustain their migration. Without milkweeds throughout their spring and summer breeding areas in North America, monarchs would not be able to produce the successive generations that culminate in the migration each fall. Similarly, without nectar from flowers these fall migratory monarch butterflies would be unable to make their long journey to overwintering grounds in Mexico. The need for host plants for larvae and energy sources for adults applies to all monarch and butterfly populations around the world.
This cache is located at the edge of the field. On your walk on the trail keep your eyes open for monarchs. For additrional information about Oakwood’s Monarch Waystation click HERE
