Welcome to the 7th Annual Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2010, a geocaching game placed by MiGO members in partnership with the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. In order to complete the series, you will need to find the 11 caches hidden in the different Metroparks.
For links to all of the caches in the series please Click Here
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.
More than 230 species of birds, including warblers, waterfowl and hummingbirds flock to the Lake St. Clair shoreline, vast marsh area, meadows and woodlands of Metro Beach Metropark. Located along two intersecting migratory routes, this is one of the top birding sites in Michigan and an excellent spot to view a variety of birds, including a few rare species. Observe black-capped chickadees, cardinals, and blue jays from a viewing window at the nature center year round. Learn about bird identification and behavior, gardening for birds, and other bird-related topics by attending programs. The Bird Migration Festival each spring offers hikes, special programs and children’s activities. Call the nature center at (586) 463-4332 for more information.
