On Wednesday, June 25, the Iowa City Public Library will welcome Jim Phelps from the Iowa Geocachers Organization at 7:00 p.m. in Meeting Room A.
If a family-friendly treasure hunt piques your interest, geocaching is for you! Using a GPS device or app and a little bit of know-how, participants seek containers called “geocaches” hidden around the world. Once found, the treasure hunter can view whatever toy or trinket is sealed inside and leave a mark of their own: a signature in the geocaches’ logbook.
At this free event, Jim Phelps will tell you all you need to know to get started as a geocacher and he’ll even plant a geocache around Iowa City, giving attendees a head-start on finding it!
