A new activity is now available at the Falls Active Center. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

Geocaches can be found all over the world. It is common for geocachers to hide caches in locations that are important to them, reflecting a special interest or skill of the cache owner. These locations can be quite diverse. They may be at your local park, at the end of a long hike, underwater or on the side of a city street.

The event is held Friday’s at 9 a.m. More information: Twila Hawkins at 388-2623.
