We are working to build an 228-mile educational Geocaching Trail along the West Branch of the Susquehanna River and we need your help!
This exciting trail is in an exclusive competition for a $5,000 grant from Do GOOD Outdoors and we need your vote to win.
National Geographic named the West Branch of the Susquehanna River in PA a Top 10 Adventure Destination for 2012! But how do you explore this amazing 228-mile resource if you’re not a professional paddler? Similarly, how do you learn about rich river history and ecology without being a local?
Geocaching is a great way to get all ages and every skill set outside, exploring this amazing resource! Using the river as a guide, the GeoTrail will unite 24 diverse cultural, historic, and natural sites that each tell a unique river story.
The caches will: Commemorate river events, people, and natural resources; Be located in publicly-accessible parks, river accesses, trails; Promote healthy recreation to paddlers and non-paddlers alike. Geocachers will learn the river’s role in the lumber and coal industries, conservation history, stories of river towns, and river wildlife and ecology.
Moreover, this GeoTrail will have a “cache-in, trash-out” philosophy so geocachers become River Stewards and collect litter along the way!
