Find the Geocache

Gone are the days of the wrinkled map marked with an X but treasures can still be found using the modern-day method of geocaching. Like the old-fashioned treasure hunt, participants seek out hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS devices or smart phone applications, then report their experiences online. In fact, there are two active caches right here at the library (one inside and one outside)! According to Geocaching.com, there are 1,188,372 active caches and between 4-5 million geocachers worldwide. For more information on geocaching in Michigan, visit the MiGo website and look for a hunt in your area.
