The 8th annual geocache event at Navarino Nature Center on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 8:30 am to 3 pm. Come and enjoy seeking about 15 event caches on the 15,000 acre Navarino Wildlife Area (WDNR). All caches are coffee can in size and spread in various locations on the wildlife area. Enjoy the migratory wildlife and fall color while you try to locate all the caches. Lunch will be available during the FALL FAMILY FUN DAY OPEN HOUSE from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm at the nature center. Donations are appreciated to help offset event costs. There will be an area to trade and display geocoins and travel bugs.
Don't have a GPS, join in with a team and learn the ropes, or rent one for the day from the nature center ($5 fee and copy of driver's license). Booklet with cache locations will be available for each team on the date of the event. Go to www.navarino.org for more details.
Nearest camping is at Rivers Edge Campground 715-752-3344.
NOTE: There will be several hunting seasons that will be open, please bring an "ORANGE" hat or jacket if caching in areas open to hunting. Most event caches have been placed in areas of the wildlife area to not conflict with hunting activities.
We will have all caches available for download on “Easy GPS” on Saturday morning. Please bring your cables and to help with the download. Updates to follow.
Caches will be available for one week after the event. Visit www.navarino.org for more details on the nature center.
Nature center staff are planning all new activities for the fall open house, and geocaches will be hid in new locations. See you there.
