Garden by the Locks Traditional Geocache

This cache has been archived.

Wizard of Ooze: As the cache owner has not indicated that they have visited the cache location to replace it if missing, perform needed maintenance, or verify that it is still there within the requested time period, I am regretfully archiving the cache to clear it from the active cache database and open the area to new caching opportunities.

If the cache owner would like to replace a cache at this location, please submit a new geocache listing and it will be reviewed under the current guidelines. Please don’t post a note on your archived listing as it won’t be forwarded to me and I won’t see it. If you need to contact me, please do so by emailing me through the contact link on my profile page or through my website

Thank you for your contributions to geocaching, and we hope to see you actively geocaching once again in the near future.

Geocache Description:

This cache is in the Carl S. English Jr. Botanical Garden. It is a beautiful garden next to the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. The park is open from 7AM-9PM. While in the area I suggest watching boats pass through the locks and crossing over to see the fish ladder. I was very surprised that a cache wasn't placed here already. Commodore Park across the bay is another park that deserves visiting. While crossing the dam you may see a seal on occasion.

This cache is a very camouflaged bison tube. Bring a pen. Just noticed that this had almost 500 visits in its young 2 year Geo-existance. Thanks for looking for this cache!
