How Can I Help?
Do you want to be part of this unique Exhibit experience beyond just visiting? We have several opportunities letting you contribute to and potentially being part of the Exhibit.
1) Volunteer – The Jackson County Agritourism Geo-Trail and Georgia GPS Adventure Maze Exhibit requires a number of volunteers from Friday, September 4th - Monday, September 7th. We need help with a variety of activities including crowd control, registration, Lab Cache support, Maze Management, etc. We expect Volunteers to spend about thirty minutes prior to their shift in training, then volunteer a 2 - 4 hour shift.
Volunteers receive a cool gift and an opportunity to attend Friday's VIP First Look activity.

2) Sponsorships – As previously mentioned, this is a not-for-profit venture and we are paying for the Exhibit primarily through sponsorships.

Our Team, in conjunction with Geocaching HQ and the Texas Geocachers Association, is extremely excited to create and deliver this rare experience to the geocaching community! We spent a tremendous amount of time and energy getting to this point and have many plans in the coming weeks and months. We certainly hope you attend the event and say “Hey, y’all!” or “Moo!!”
