Geocache Description:

Saturday, April 25, 2015
3:30 PM to 5:30 PM

April 25th and 26th is the CITO Weekend. In case you haven’t heard, CITO stands for Cache In Trash Out. It’s the geocacher’s approach to keeping our game board (i.e. the entire planet) in great shape. On the weekend of April 25 and 26, geocachers around the globe will gather together, pick up trash, remove invasive species, repair trails and more—plus earn a pretty sweet new souvenir.

Wear comfortable shoes, and bring work gloves. Trash bags & refreshments will be provided

Willow Lake was originally created for the 1939 World's Fair and designated "Freshwater Wetland" Over the years it fell into disrepair. Pat Dolan, with other concerned residents, wanted to restore the area to its original state. In order to accomplish that goal, Pat organized the Flushing Meadow Corona Park Conservancy.

Pat Dolan, a longtime civic activist was killed in a car accident on her way to a transportation meeting. Pat was crossing Hillside Avenue near 198th Street at approximately 7:30 p.m. on November 15, 2011 when she was struck by a vehicle.

To honor her for her efforts, the trail was named after her.

This CITO event is being conducted in conjunction with the Flushing Meadow Corona Park Conservancy.
