CITO (Cache In Trash Out ®) Events are a way for the geocaching community to take care of the natural areas we enjoy while geocaching.
Cache In Trash Out is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community. Since 2002, geocachers around the world have been dedicated to improving parks and other cache-friendly places. Through these volunteer efforts, we help preserve the natural beauty of our outdoor resources!
Geocachers around the world celebrate International Cache In Trash Out weekend annually by hosting and participating in Cache In Trash Out Events in their local area. Events might be focused on litter clean-up, removal of invasive species, revegetation efforts or building trails. Together, we make an enormous positive impact and have a bit of fun while we're at it.
This year, the CITO weeks have been extended to include 3 months in the spring and another 3 in the autumn. Now in its 17th Year Cache In Trash Out period for spring is scheduled to include all March April and May.
A CITO event has its own Geocaching icon and statistical entry, so for those who have never taken part in one before, now is your opportunity to be rewarded with something new. And Groundspeak has confirmed that there will, once again, be a special souvenir for those logging an Attended at any CITO event during this spring campaign.
