Introduction to Geocaching

Howell Woods Nature Center Classroom

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a GPS receiver or mobile device to hide and seek containers called caches. We will explain the basics to geocaching, demonstrate how to create an account with geocaching.com, and practice using a GPS unit. We will then use that knowledge to find caches at Howell Woods!
