Greenwich history enthusiasts are invited to take part in a geocaching adventure on Saturday, October 3. Families and residents of all ages will enjoy hunting for geocaches which have been hidden near Greenwich historical locations. Can you be the FTF (First To Find)?
Visit the Welcome Desk at the Main Library any time after 9 a.m. to receive an important information packet with a map and the coordinates of local 'caches'. All of the caches for this program are within walking distance of the Library.
We encourage you to take part in this program on October third, but you can also geocache at any time. No registration is required for this program.
Geocaching is a worldwide outdoor treasure hunt that allows people of all ages the chance to explore new places using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Individuals in the area who are not participating are called "Muggles" and most geocachers try to find their caches without the Muggles noticing.
There are 2,679,335 geocaches around the world, some of which are near you right now - at your local park, at the end of a hike or at a local landmark. All you need to start finding them is a free www.geocaching.com account and the Official Geocaching app or a handheld GPS.
