Geocaching basics

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Do you enjoy a good scavenger hunt? Then geocaching may be just the activity for you. Learn to navigate using a Global Positioning System (GPS) unit. The O'Brien County Conservation Board is offering a "Geocaching Basics" class.

Meet at the Prairie Heritage Center on Tuesday, Aug. 2 at 6:30 p.m. Learn a little about how to navigate with the units. Then head across the road from the center to put your new found knowledge to the test. Several geocache sites are hidden near the trails.

Come out for an evening of fun and learn a new skill. This class is suitable for family groups. Wear walking shoes and be prepared to be outdoors. GPS units will be provided.

For more information, contact the Prairie Heritage Center at 712-295-7200.
