March 2018 Event: Get your Green on!

Our March event was a great success! Thank you to everyone who came out and participated in our great event! It was another great turn-out with lots of new faces and old ones. The scavenger hunt was excellent and the selfies were even better! Thanks again to Magnolia Springs State Park for allowing us to hold our event there, the park naturalist for giving a great tour, and for the "Friends of Magnolia Springs" for helping out immensely to make sure we had a great event! We had 36 brand new caches publish during the weekend of the event with 12 brand new caches in the state park. The logs keep coming in and we are happy to see many new cacher's getting the first "FTF's"! Hope to see many others at our next event!  [more...]
