Cache In Trash Out is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Since 2002, geocachers around the world have been dedicated to improving parks and other cache-friendly places. Through these volunteer efforts, we help preserve the natural beauty of our outdoor resources.
2010 marked the 10yr anniversary of Geocaching. Events were held around the world in celebration. Following on from this, Grounspeak have declared 20th August 2011 International Geocaching Day. They're having a big party to celebrate it at the lily pad, Groundspeak HQ, so we thought we'd join in here from over the pond :) This CITO is part of the celebrations.
All are welcome to attend including people new to Geocaching and visitors to Ireland. Please post how many people with each "Will Attend"
