Today is Earth Day and we at Geocaching HQ want to remind you what it’s all about with this Earth Day scavenger hunt!
Earth Day may only come around once a year, but our respect for the planet shouldn’t be limited to just one day. Today is a way to celebrate the world on which we live, as well as a way to increase awareness of how our actions impact the environment around us.
As geocachers, we recognize the ways in which we utilize the earth in the hobby that we love. We do our best to give back to the environment throughout the year through Cache In Trash Out (CITO) Events, but it’s easy to forget to stop and appreciate the planet as we go about our everyday lives. So as you go out geocaching today, we want to remind you to look up from your screen, breathe it all in, and appreciate the life around you.
That’s why we’ve created this Earth Day scavenger hunt for you to take with you on your next walk or geocaching adventure! We encourage you to notice the small things about life in your neighborhood and challenge your friends and family to do the same.
You might find some of these items as elusive as geocache containers themselves, while others might have been hiding in plain sight the whole time. No matter how you choose to hunt, be sure to take a moment today and give thanks to the earth for all that it provides.
