Date(s):

Saturday, April 20, 2019 3:00 pm  - 4:00 pm

Overview:

Join a ranger as we look for some treasures, and you can become acquainted with the GPS units available to rent in the office.

Hunting for treasure changed forever in the early 2000's. Using state of the art satellite technology, and hand-held tracking devices, people started to... hide Tupperware in the woods. While this sounds incredibly silly, Geocaching took the world by storm. People all around the globe now work together to find these hidden treasures and to leave a treasure behind for someone else to find. This is a great family fun activity that is available at each of the Virginia State Parks, but if you have never tired it, this is your opportunity to learn how it is done. Join a ranger as we look for some of these treasures, and you can become acquainted with the GPS units we have available to rent in the office. Free and open to all ages.
