What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an outdoor game where participants use GPS receivers to find cleverly hidden containers called geocaches. A typical cache is a small container with a logbook and possible trinket. Geocaching is not merely about hunting down treasures. It also provides participants a way to explore and appreciate the outdoors while sharing experiences and stories. Find out more about how to get started geocaching by visiting the official geocaching website.
Mississippi River Geocache Series
The Mississippi River Geocache progam is a series of caches placed at partner parks within the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. The purpose of the geocache series is to provide geocachers with an opportunity to explore and enjoy the many sites and features along Mississippi River. All caches have been approved by managing agencies and organizations. Check back often for newly registered geocaches. If possible, cache in/trash out.
