Learn the Basics of Geocaching at ICPL on June 25

by on June 17th, 2014

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.

GeocacheIf 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!
