The Adventure Begins!
A typical geocache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and "treasure" usually toys or trinket of little value. When you find a cache you remove a trinket and leave a trinket, write a message to other geocachers and then put the cache back. When you get home can go online to www.geocaching.com and register your find. You may even find a travel bug or coin!
Today, well over 650,000 geocaches are registered on the host website www.geocaching .com. Geocaches are currently placed in over 100 countries and all seven continents, including Antarctica.
Geocaching is a low cost family sport and can turn a normal hike into a treasure hunt. For how to get started in this sport visit geocaching .com.
Attention Geocachers: Check Before Placing A Geocache Box In A Conservation Area.
GPS Loan Program
GPS units are available at the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Administrative office during business hours. Persons wishing to sign out a GPS unit will need to supply a phone number from a Durham Region residence and a valid VISA credit card number with matching photo identification. A deposit will be taken on the credit card until the unit is returned. GPS units may be borrowed for a period of 5 days.
To date, if you wish to place a geocache in the Conservation Areas please use the rule that they can be placed (up to 1 metre) on either side of a CLOCA designated trail.
Thank you for your cooperation and remember Cache In - Trash Out.
