Geocache Description:

This is a fairly easy park'n grab. You are looking for a camouflaged waterproof matchbox container found in Marysville's city park.

Be on the lookout when driving around town, for the black squirrel has the right of way on all streets. The fine is $25 for harming one. The most likely explanation for the profusion of black squirrels involves a traveling carnival which passed through town in the 1920s and stayed for a few days in the city park. Among the carnival exhibits was a cage full of black squirrels. One night a child opened the cage and the squirrels escaped. Since then, the squirrels have increased their ranks. About 1/5th of Marysville's squirrel population is now black. Whatever the reason for their presence in Marysville, residents and passerby seem to love them. This location is one of the best areas to see them for yourself.
