Geocaching is a relatively new game that is growing quickly in popularity. It can be compared to a high tech scavenger hunt, using “GPS” technology in order to find hidden treasures. Participating in cache hunting is a good way to spend time in the great outdoors with friends or family. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the Internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. The visitor should leave something for the cache if they take something. There are several cache sites located in Lee County, please contact San Lee Park to obtain a geocache placement application and the policies associated with the placement of a geocache site. Good luck and happy hunting.
