Attn: All Geocachers!

During second quarter of school (Oct-Jan), we will be teaching an experienceship on geocaching and orienteering to small group of students. There are some geocaches near the middle school that we would be able to find during the 90 minutes we get on Wednesdays to explore. However, most are too far away for us to travel to safely by foot. If you enjoy geocaching and would like to hide/tag a geocache before the end of October, we would love some help adding more. We are trying to keep the students from crossing over Springfield Pike if possible, north of Grove Park and south of Oak park. Thanks so much! If you are an avid geocacher and would like to help a few Wednesdays in Nov/Dec from 1:30-3:00 pm, please contact Stephanie O’Hara at Thanks and happy geocaching!
