About the ANSG

The ANSG is a registered provincial not-for-profit association in Nova Scotia. Our goals are to promote Nova Scotia as a geocaching destination, and to educate the public about safe, ethical, and drama-free geocaching.

  • partnered with Parks Canada to hide geocaches

  • raised funds for event sponsorship

  • supported many geocaching events

  • built a platform for social connections

  • educated new cachers

  • partnered with HQ on the last ever Canadian presence of the Adventure Maze
