Geocache Description:

Welcome to the Gardens! Please note the entrance gate on First Avenue is always unlocked, but make sure to close it after entering.

DO NOT search at night. Please restrict your caching to daylight hours in order to preserve the gardens for everyone to enjoy.

This is a mystery cache. It is NOT located at the listed coordinates. The listed coordinates will bring you to the parking area for the cache series. The cache is located at N 44 59.ABC and W 089 38.DEF. Original contents include many nature-related items, including seed packets, wildlife playing cards, and a Smokey Bear eraser. Please take a seed packet when you find the cache, as they will not last forever.

This cache is part of the “Monk Gardens Series” located at the Robert W. Monk Gardens in Wausau. The Monk Gardens are Central Wisconsin’s first public botanical gardens. Development of the twenty-acre parcel has been ongoing since it was donated in 2004. The gardens currently have a system of walking trails and are open to the public from dawn to dusk in all seasons. Permission for these caches was granted by the Board of Directors. For more information, see their website: (visit link)

Please enjoy the scenery while also protecting it; do not trample sensitive vegetation or damage plants during your search. No cache is more than a couple of steps off of the trail. Please, no bushwacking!
