It's time for the spring version of trash pick up on this adopted section of highway in Story County by the Iowa Geocachers Organization. With enough cachers (12 to 16+), this cleanup can be accomplished in about two hours. Smaller participation increases the time to finish our task, so spread the word to your fellow cachers!!
The posted coordinates are where we will park and gather for a short safety and instructional meeting before we head out in teams to complete this community service. The parking location is the Park and Ride at the junction of Highways 210 and 69.
Please come prepared with proper footwear for hiking, gloves, and any special ‘pickup’ tools that you prefer. There nearest restroom and convenience store is in Huxley about 3 miles away from the clean-up site. The Iowa DOT requires that everyone wears a safety vest which will be provided to you, so please post the number of people attending in your ‘will attend’ log so that enough vests are available for everyone participating.
There will be a Geocaching CITO souvenir available that week for geocachers who participate in CITO events for Earth Day.
After the CITO event there will be a Story County Geocache Bash social event at the Ames Pizza Ranch. Please feel free to come to that event as well. We plan on releasing about 10 new caches at social the event.
