Welcome to the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission's 2017 Geocaching Adventure! This year, we have placed nine geocaches in our properties throughout the county. Your mission is to find them, note the code words listed inside each cache and, once you have found all nine caches, contact us via the Send Email option on Geocaching.com with your complete list of caches and related code words. Those geocachers who complete the adventure will receive a special collectible. But wait! There's more! One of our geocaches is a mystery cache. To find it, you'll need to collect the coordinate segments from three different caches. One of our 2017 caches is also a little more challenging than a traditional hide, so prepare to be challenged! If you're gunning to be our FTF this year, be sure to email us your list of code words as soon as possible! Now head outside and have a wonderful Adventure!
Fox Science Preserve in Scio Township is a diamond in the rough. What may seem like a barren landscape of brush and rock is in actuality a geological gemstone, with fascinating glacial erratics -- some more than 2 billion years old! -- dropped in situ by the glacial action that carved the Great Lakes. Take some time to check out the information panels and learn more about the fascinating history of this preserve. As with all Washtenaw County preserves, no dogs are allowed. Please be respectful of the private residences and driveways that surround the preserve. Please also make sure to replace this cache in its hide to keep it fun and challenging for the next cacher. Thank you!
Congratulations to HelloLola, the FTF this cache!
