Geocaching 101. Saturday, July 16th from 9-10am in Exeter!

Ever heard of or already experienced geocaching?

Geocaching is a scavenger hunt-style game using a GPS receiver. It’s a type of global treasure hunt of people looking for caches, or hidden stashes of objects. Think of it as a series of hide-and-seek games, where hiders provide online clues for seekers. Seekers use global positioning system (GPS) devices to find hidden caches.

If you haven’t tried this before this Saturday from 9-10am would be a great opportunity to do so.

Join the Exeter Conservation Commission on Saturday, July 16th and learn the basics of geocaching, then put your new skills to the test in this FREE, family-friendly event.

Before you arrive it would be really helpful to have already downloaded the app in advance at

The group will meet at the end of the Commerce Way cul-de-sac and explore 3 existing geocache sites, including the infamous Ft. Rock.

The total hiking distance is approximately 0.75 mi.

Please contact Kristen Murphy at with any questions.

Happy hunting!
