Geocaching Prohibited

Geocaching uses a GPS (Global Positioning System) unit to navigate to pre-determined locations to find a "cache." A cache can be a container of some sort. Computer websites further support this activity. While it may seem like an exciting opportunity, it presents a variety of problems when it comes to the Preserve and is inconsistent with the Preserve Ordinance that regulates use and activities in the Preserve. The Preserve Ordinance requires users to stay on open, designated trails and not to leave anything in the Preserve. Our thanks to all for understanding of and appreciation for the Preserve vision, rules and regulations.
