The St. Clair Region Conservation Authority is hosting a Geocaching Adventure at Lorne C. Henderson Conservation Area near Petrolia on Sunday, September 21 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

 

This is a chance to explore the Conservation Area with a “Geocaching Twist”.  Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt which uses a global positioning system (GPS) unit to locate a hidden cache (treasure).  This event is for both seasoned geocachers and for those that want to just see what geocaching is all about. Staff will be available to provide the basics to get you started. You can either bring your own GPS receiver or borrow one. There are a limited number of GPS receivers available.  A computer will be set up to upload the coordinates to your GPS (if your GPS needs a special cable please bring it). There will be a potluck lunch.
