What better way to celebrate 20+ years of Geocaching than to help give our planet some Love?
For this event we will be removing litter from along the trails, banks and portage area at Tygerberry Park. We will also coordinate efforts to do minor trail maintenance and erosion control. We will have litter bags and disposable gloves on hand, along with rakes, shovels, hand trimmers, etc, but please feel free to bring your own gloves, boots, and tools for a morning of social distanced sweat, socially distanced fellowship, and fun!
(If you would like to have a little water-action, bring your vessel of choice and paddle the shoreline of the area by using the new ADA compliant kayak portage!)
In addition to the event icon and souvenir, there is also the "Blue Switch Day" souvenir available:
AND you also will have a great opportunity to log the new:
