Are you itching to get outside? Do you want to get your kids unglued from the TV and video games? The answer to these questions should be a resounding YES! It’s been a mild winter and we need to get outside and so some exploring. Come to the Curing Cabin Fever VI Geocaching Event (GC70BNM) on March 25th. Some folks are versed in Geocaching while others don’t even know how to pronounce it. For those not familiar, it’s pronounced (JEE-oh-CASh-ing). It is a high-tech treasure hunt using a hand-held Global Positioning System receiver (GPSr) to find a treasure or cache. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and “treasure,” usually toys or trinkets of little monetary value. The event will be held at the Ingersoll Wetlands Learning Center 7071 Riverview Rd, Thomson, IL.
You can make your reservation by submitting a “log your visit”; “will attend” on Geocaching.com or call the Ingersoll Wetlands Learning Center at: 815-273-2732 ext. 116. Please include the TOTAL number of people that plan on attending. This free event is geared towards beginners, however all levels are welcome. You don’t need to own a GPSr, you can borrow one of ours for the day. If you do bring your own, please be sure to have your cable to connect to the computer for downloading cache locations. Come and be prepared to cure your Cabin Fever.
We also need experienced geocachers to volunteer and help us with the field practice. If you would like to volunteer either call or let us know when you log in.
