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!
A wonderful maple-beech woodland, Kosch-Headwaters Preserve is home to many mature beech. Wetlands, seasonal streams, and a spring flowing out of the maple-beech woodland all contribute to the headwaters of Fowler Creek, which ultimately flows into the Rouge River, hence the name "headwaters." Cultivated land makes up about 50% of the property and is currently farmed. Looking to the future, the open land presents opportunities for wildlife conservation plantings and habitat restoration that will further protect the existing high quality natural areas. Please be careful in putting the cache back in its hiding spot so that it doesn't slip out of its hide. We'd appreciate your using the provided camouflage to better conceal the container, too. Thanks!
Congratulations to Working4cache, the FTF for this cache!
