Special to the Citizen

Join the cache craze at Rock Eagle’s Saturday @the Rock on Saturday, March 19. Traditional treasure hunting mixed with modern GPS navigation, we’ll learn geocaching basics. Geocaching provides the opportunity to visit unique destinations, or traverse secret spots in your own community. With over 2 million caches hidden worldwide, who knows what kind of treasure might be hiding right under your nose… We’ll start by discussing the basics of geocaching, and ways in which you can get involved. Afterwards, we’ll hike up to the Rock Eagle Mound to hunt a hidden cache. You and your family are invited to join in on this worldwide game of “hide and seek.” After attending this Saturday @the Rock session, you will be ready to test your skill with a county wide scavenger hunt. Set up by Eatonton-Putnam Chamber of Commerce, eight caches have been hidden, encouraging and guiding explorers to connect with local history. Participants will collect trading cards, one at each spot. Collect all eight and turn them in for a prize! This program is appropriate for ages 6 and up. Cost is $3 per person. This month’s session will be held on March 19th, 9:30-11:30am. Guests will convene in the center’s Natural History Museum prior to the program. Advanced registration is required. Equipment will be provided. Space limited. For more information or to register please contact Jessica Torhan at (706) 484-4838 or by email at jtorhan1@uga.edu.
