Hide things! Find things! Learn about maps and navigation!

Geocaching is where hiking meets hide-and-seek! 'Geo' means land and a 'cache' is something that is hidden. Plan routes to look for geocaches hidden on trails in your area. Learn about geocaching safety. Make and hide your own geocache with your family. Share your finds with the group. Come to one or come to all!

Heather Turnbull Learn more about me

As a scientist, I LOVE exploring and learning through hands-on experimenting! Planting seeds and sprouts and watching them grow is one of my favourite things to do. I am an active learner and am currently participating in my MEd, my fourth university degree. I have worked with the Ontario Science Centre, Science North, and as a grade 7 and 8 classroom teacher for many years - all great places to try new things. I believe staying curious is the most important thing people can do!

I like taking pictures of plants, animals, water and sky, then use them to create fun works of art using glass, wood or paint!
