Geocache Description:

The MSC CITO will be a traditional Cache-In Trash-Out event held in the City of Auburn on August 10th, 2013. CITO Headquarters will be at the posted coordinates, the Auburn Parks & Recreation Department at Pettengill Park. Attendees will collect trash and illicitly dumped junk from public lands located across the city. Prizes and goodies will be given to all attendees.

In 2009 and in 2011, Team Norac, Maine brought you the Twin City CITOs.
In continuing that tradition, Troop 160 Memorial Scout Camp, an independent scouting organization and local non-profit, will be sponsoring a CITO event on August 10th, 2013.

This listing will be updated with more information about the CITO as it becomes available.
