Join us on Saturday February 15th from 8:00 AM to 10:00AM at Delong Park as the Cool Cow Cachers host our second CITO event of 2020!
For our second CITO event of the year, we're going to visit Delong Park. This park presents two different faces to the world, the northern "civilized" face and the southern "wild" face. While we will cover the entire park, we suspect that the most satisfying work will be done in the wilds of the southern end. We will meet in the parking lot at the north end of the park but additional parking is available in the parking lot at the southern entrance to the park. We'll provide hot beverages and morning treats to give you a little kick start. Trash bags and some grabbers will be provided but if you have your own by all means bring them.
Our first CITO event at McKinley Park was a big success but it got us to thinking. There are currently 124 active geocaches within 41 different Tacoma Parks. (For those of you working on the Tacoma Black Cow Challenge, fully one third of the required caches are within a Tacoma Park.) We realized that for being such an integral part of the geocaching experience in Tacoma, the parks don't get nearly enough love from our community so we decided to do something about that.
In 2020 we've decided to hold a series of monthly CITO events. Each month we will visit a different park and some months we may even visit a couple of smaller parks during the day. Once per season, for the March, June, September and December events we will once again join forces with Metro Parks Tacoma for one of their regularly schedule volunteer work parties.
|CITO can happen on every geocaching adventure, not just during events! Pick up trash that you see on the trail. Clean up the area around each geocache. These small acts make a huge difference.
