Geocachers, don’t miss the 6th annual Discover L&A County Geocaching Event, happening on August 18, 2018!
We're moving, but not too far. With successfully hosting our first "Outdoors" DLA MEGA event in 2017, we've decided to move the event to the beautiful grounds of the Lennox & Addington County Museum and Archives, located at 97 Thomas Street East in Napanee (N 44° 15.142 W 076° 57.020).
We've attracted thousands of geocachers to Lennox & Addington County since our first event in 2011. Last year, more than 1,000 geocachers from around the world attended L&A's fifth consecutive MEGA Event. This year marks our 6th MEGA Anniversary, and like every year we will have a full week of activities to keep you busy, from mini-events to themed county bus tours and live, local music.
Oh, and lots and lots of new geocaches!
Here's the itinerary:
