If you’re not familiar with geocaching, it’s a great game where people hide boxes (or caches) of goodies all over the world and register the geographic coordinates on www.geocaching.com. Using a Global Positioning System (GPS) enabled-device, users are then able to go hunting for boxes/caches. There are likely dozens of geocaches around you right now, waiting to be found!
We’ll have a brief introduction to geocaching along with directions on how to do it. Then you’ll have the chance to go out and find some on your own!
Don’t have a GPS unit? Don’t worry! We’ll have GPS units available for you to try out.
Saturday, June 7th 10 am to 12 pm
The Brandwein Nature Learning Preserve is just over the PA and NJ borders in Greenville, NY (enter 397 Minisink Turnpike, Port Jervis on your car’s GPS) The Preserve is on Minisink Turnpike just past the intersection with Logtown Road.

Kevin DeVizia (known to geocachers as Captain Math) will explain the basics of how geocaching works, how you can do it and the fun you’ll have doing it. We’ll have sample geocaches set up so you can try out your skills right away.
