Poor Mother Goose is a special, regular cache. When Mother Goose arrived in the Kettle Morraine, she brought with her five complete mini-caches(gozlings). If you find Mother Goose and you know of a good spot to hide a mini cache, but you just haven't got around to it, you can take a mini container (the gosling) out of the cache and hide it. Since the original five gozlings were adopted, additional little ones have been added. Some of these have found new homes whilest others await.

Poor Mother Goose has just a couple of requests.

  1. Only take the gosling if you know a prime spot to hide it in southeast Wisconsin Please don't take it and then hide it on your way back to the car.
  2. After the cache has been hidden, register it Please use the original name of the gosling. Sometimes an adopted gosling grows into a beautiful, full-grown goose (a regular cache). Please keep the original name of the gosling when it is registered. Once the cache has been registered, email

PMG(Poor Mother Goose) has been happy to provide a temporary home to wayword goslings. She has been very pleased with how the past goslings have been treated. All are in safe homes. PMG is happy to sit in her rocking chair and await news from her brood. PMG is even a grandmother! Apparently, things happen rapidly for geese.

For a short time, PMG is happy to be in the nest alone.

PMG is always happy to greet visitors. Some visitors even adopt a gosling. PMG has decided to name each of her new goslings with Roman numerals. The following goslings await adoption:
