Geocaching is an outdoor treasure-hunting game in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called "geocaches" or "caches") anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container (usually a tupperware or ammo box) containing a logbook and "treasure," usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries around the world and on all seven continents, including Antarctica. Learn more at Geocaching.com.
This great free, family-friendly, high-tech version of hide & seek continues in
Geauga Park District in 2014 with a three-part multi-season cache highlighting the new Something's Afoot: Nature Just Can't Stay Put exhibit at The West Woods Nature Center.
The first cache of 2015 is a two-part multicache located in
Swine Creek Reservation in Middlefield Township.

The Park District’s sugarbush of maple trees
Has been under our management since 1983,
Though it was a sugarbush for many years before.
Swing by at sugaring time to find out more!
From the sugarhouse, proceed downhill
And veer to the right when you reach the stream.
Ahead, a tubing collection shed can be seen.
On the hillside below the sugarhouse,
A rotting maple stump has a hole fit for a mouse.
This cache expires January 31, 2016.
The fall cache of 2014 is a three-part multicache located at Big Creek Park in Chardon Township.

With Maple Grove parking as your starting location,
Train your eye on the outhouse as your next destination.
If you pass the latrines and go left on the trail,
Walk by a log pile and you're sure not to fail.
A short distance on the left, spot a cherry in decay.
Now grab the cache quick, lest ants take it away.
This cache expires March 1, 2015.
