Description

This year's topic: geocaching!

Geocaching is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS and can then share their experiences online. There are almost 2 million caches and 5 million cachers worldwide. For many, the best part of Geocaching is getting outdoors and seeing natural and developed areas that you normally wouldn't see. The Charlotte Harbor Preserve State Park and the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserves are hosts to over 100 Geocaches. Does that sound like fun?

If you would like to find out more please come to the FCHAP Annual Meeting for a presentation of Geocaching 101. Our Instructor, Dave Pulaski (AKA - Grrtrainman) is a retired high school teacher who now spends a lot of his time Geocaching. Dave has found more than 3,700 geocaches and has hidden 104 (and counting). Dave will be teaching about the basics of Geocaching and, if we're lucky, he'll give us some of his tips and tricks for how to become a great player. Time permitting we'll spend some time finding caches in the park.

We'll have a Geocaching walk starting at 7am at the Preserve and the Friends will be providing breakfast at 9am. RSVP required!

Contact info@fchap.org or 941-575-5861 to reserve your seat! More information may be available at the Friends of Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Preserve.
