Time to clean up the environment and leave things a bit cleaner than what we found them. As such it's time for a Cache In Trash Out event! We're going to take some time out, clean up the area and leave with a smiley for doing so...
Kiwanis Park is located off of Eastern Boulevard along the East side of Hagerstown. It contains a pavilion, a paved parking lot as well as paths and boardwalks leading to a canoe/kayak launch into the Antietam Creek. Almost two miles of flatwater for paddling is accesible here between Security Road to the north and Mt. Aetna Road to the south. Other features include the historic Saylor House homestead which is currently being renovated as well as a monarch butterfly garden.
Anyways, with all of the fine print out of the way let's get back to THIS event. This event will be hosted by yours truly. I will be supplying the following:
- Trash Bags
- Extra Gloves
Items that YOU should bring with you:
- Long Pants (for those who are allergic to to poison ivy)
- Friends and Family
Why YOU, of course...whether you have one cache find or a thousand cache finds, please feel free to come join us for a CITO - Cache In Trash Out Event.

371 Dynasty Drive
At 12:40 PM we'll make our way to GZ and commence with the clean-up. We will be cleaning up light garbage on this trip. While the lion's share of this CITO will be on dry land there may be a bit of garbage down in the tributary bed or along the creekside. If you have a sturdy pair of boots that are capable of handling riprap that would help immensely. Water shoes for those who wish to help out along the creek are also suggested.
To clean up the environment, talk geocaching, and trade bugs. Those who wish to may also do some geocaching before or after the event.
Extra things to keep in mind:
- If you pick up a Travel Bug or trackable coin at one of the events, make sure you log it out so it doesn't show up in the events list. If a trackable sits as being listed in the event for a couple of months, the cache owner is the one that gets the e-mail from the TB owner(s).
- This event will be held rain, snow or shine.
- Those who wish to help out with this event please come dressed appropriately. Briars, brambles, stinging nettle and poison ivy are always a possibility when traipsing through the woods. LONG pants are encouraged if you don't want to be miserable all afternoon.
Thanks to all who came out to help clean up the environment!!!
