While looking for this cache, please stay on the trails. The size of the cache is a 2" circular tube. There is a logbook and room for smaller travel bugs.
While on your hike if you have time, check out the level of the water in Wood Lake. The meter is located at the following coordinates. N44.52.798 W93.17.349
Post the level online in your post. Today it is at "4.74". It will be interesting to watch the level of the lake change in the different posts.
Also, post online what you enjoyed most about the nature center. List any interesting animals that you have spotted on your hike. If you are not sure which animals are which, go into the Nature Center and you will find answers to all the questions you have.
Please stay on the trails and enjoy!
There are many garbage cans along the trail. If you see any garbage, please pick it up and drop it at the next can. Thanks.
If you really like the park, and would like to help support it, consider joining "FOWL" (Friends Of Wood Lake.) There are brochures with information on this in the Nature Center. The membership structure will soon be changing to include free events for members.
This is the first in an effort to connect other local Nature Centers together and to promote responsible and environmentally friendly geocaching. This one is a children freindly cache with the exception that an adult will be needed to reach it, and we ask that everyone please stay on the trails.
