“Go outside, get into nature and make your own discoveries!” That is what Dr. Scott challenges his viewers to do at the end of each Dinosaur Train episode. In support of this call to action, The Jim Henson Company has hidden Dinosaur Train themed geocaches nationwide with the help of local PBS stations.
For more information on this educational outreach initiative and to find the location of other Dinosaur Train themed geocaches, please visit the Dinosaur Train Geocaching.com Page
Each geocache celebrates a dinosaur featured in the Dinosaur Train Field Guide on the PBS Kids website. This geocache is the Corythosaurus geocache. Corythosaurus was an herbivore from the Cretaceous. We don’t know for sure, but it may have eaten needles from conifer trees or leaves from flowering plants.
What is your favorite dinosaur? Be sure to tell us when signing the logbook and noting your find here! For more Dinosaur Train related activities, games and educational resources, please visit the Dinosaur Train Parents page.
The hide location is accessible around the clock, though you might occasionally run into some station staff taking their breaks nearby. Please do not park in our driveways.
The hiding spot contains two lock-and-lock containers, so there's plenty of room for swag, travel bugs, and geocoins.
If you are reading this on a smartphone app such that you can't see the tag on the hint, be aware that the hint is a total spoiler. We did that so that any small fans of Dinosaur Train will be certain to find the cache. We don't want anyone to fail to find it once they come looking.

KCTS 9 has sent out 3 travel bugs to race around the country. They are the Cory Corythosaurus sisters, each trying to go to four special Dinosaur Train caches before returning home to this cache. We'll use this page to keep track of all of them.
The 4 goal caches are:
GC273QV Dinosaur Train Tyrannosaurus - Jim Henson Co. in California, where the Dinosaur Train show is made.
GC2834R Palaeobatrachus Dinosaur Train Cache - WEDU in Florida, one of the farthest Dinosaur Train caches from our home.
GC3B1QW Dinosaur Train Geocache: Corythosaurus in New Jersey, another Dinosaur Train Corythosaurus cache. This cache has been archived, so it is no longer a goal in the race. None of the Corys ever visited it.
GC26VRH Dinosaur Train Velociraptor - WNET in New York, the most-found of all the Dinosaur Train caches.
The race began on the 15 August 2015, when the Cory sisters were dropped into the Geocaching Headquarters cache at the 2015 Geocaching Block Party.
Race progress, as of 9 November 2017--A bold, purple number in the chart indicates the current leader or co-leaders in that category.
These numbers include only logged information. If a cache visit or cacher discovery is mentioned in the text of a log, but not logged as a separate item, it won't be counted. Some Corys may visit the same cache multiple times, but each log counts. (It's difficult to weed out the duplicate visits.)
Though it's not one of the race goals, it seems worth mentioning that Cory Corythosaurus Green is the first and only one of the Cory sisters to leave the United States of America. She visited the United States of Mexico on 13 January 2017. She returned shortly thereafter.
We've been forced to admit that Cory Red is missing. She was unlogged for many months, and there were several reports that the cache she'd been placed in had no travelers inside.
