How Geocaching Works

To celebrate Earth Day, Occoquan Elementary School would like for you to join us for a clean up of the playgrounds and the Sharon Lake Memorial Picnic Area behind the school.
A few months back I took a quick walk around the field behind the school with my daughter and thought "Wow, This place needs a CITO." So I contacted the Principal and got permission to have one on the grounds. Seeing broken beer bottles on the grass makes it hard to imagine that field days and recesses take place here. The school custodian does the best he can, but there is a lot of trash left here weekly. Some is from weekend soccer matches, some is from the nearby businesses, and the rest just comes with the wind.
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! Also all geocachers who participate in a CITO this weekend will earn a pretty sweet new souvenir!

Most everything you need for the cleanup will be provided at the starting coords: (Trash Bags, water, snacks, etc.) Yet, you WILL get dirty, so dress appropriately, and wear good footwear. The fields could be soggy. The woodline has thorns and some poison ivy. Your garden gloves will come in handy as well. Our planned cleanup area is marked in red on the picture below.
