After completing a region you are eligible to purchase unique, trackable geocoins! By purchasing a coin, you are directly contributing funds to Texas State Parks and their ability to further develop programming like the Statewide Geocache Challenge.
This cache is one of 12 that make up the Houston Region of the 2011 Texas State Parks Geocache Challenge! Please note that you only need to visit 10 of the 12 caches in this region to receive credit for completing the challenge.
Before you set out to find the caches be sure to download the Houston Area Challenge Passport. Use the special punch to mark the appropriate place in the Passport and answer the questions based on the information found on the site specific geocard. Park entry fees apply. Consider purchasing an annual pass for $60 that will save you money all year long!
The Challenge will begin June 25th, 2011 and continue until June 2012. The first 25 completed Passports that we receive in each region will earn a free commemorative Texas Geocache Challenge geocoin. All participants who return their completed passports will be given a voucher, making them eligible to purchase an additional, trackable and regionally specific geocoin.
For more information visit Texas Parks and Wildlife and Lake Texana State Park.
