To celebrate this year’s 100th anniversary of Washington state parks, geocaches have been placed at points of interest in 100 state parks in a program called the State Parks Centennial GeoTour.
The state park system and the Washington State Geocaching Association collaborated on the program. The first participants to find 50 caches can earn a silver GeoCoin and the first 30 participants to find 100 caches can earn a gold Geo-Coin. A printable map, passport and other information can be found at parks.wa.gov/geocaching. Geocaching is a family-oriented activity where participants search for hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS unit.
