Tri-Cities 2019 Geocoin Challenge

"STEAM" (Science ~ Technology ~ Engineering ~ Art ~ Math)

Saturday, June 29, 2019
Columbia Point Marina Park


Hope you can join us for our 10th Annual Tri-Cities Geocoin Challenge.

If you have never been to our event, this will be the year to make the trek to the beautiful Tri-Cities, WA. Yes, there are four cities involved, but we are still considered the "Tri-Cities."

For 2019, we are bringing the event back to the city where this craziness began 10 years ago. We are looking forward to a packed weekend of fun.

  • Free, family friendly weekend for new and experienced geocachers.
  • Travel around Tri-Cities (including West Richland) to find 28 out of 32 geocaches and earn a trackable geocoin.
  • Those who complete the challenge will receive a free geocoin. 
  • Kids (13 and under) who complete the challenge will receive a prize.
