News and Upcoming Events

International EarthCache Day is October 11

On October 11, you can earn a new souvenir for celebrating the geocaching game board. What's that, you ask? The whole entire Earth!* 

All you have to do is go out and find an EarthCache on International EarthCache Day.  EarthCaches don't have physical containers, but instead bring you to a unique location and teach you an earth science lesson. To make the find, you'll have to check the EarthCache's description and answer questions based on where you are.
