Project Description

Presented by the Medina County Visitors Bureau and the Medina County Park District.

Geocaching is a ‘scavenger hunt’ type of outdoor recreational activity that is of interest to those of all ages. Participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or their mobile device to seek container (geocaches) hidden anywhere in the world.  There are currently more than 2.8 million active geocaches in the world!

A typical geocache is a waterproof container with a log book for finders to sign.
