The 8th annual Metroparks Geocaching Adventure is operated by members of the Michigan Geocaching Association in partnership with the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. It is a series of geocaches placed and maintained by MiGO members. The theme for this year's adventure is "Get out and Play!"
 

Participating in the Adventure

In order to complete the Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2011 one needs to find the 11 caches hidden in 11 different Metroparks. At each cache obtain two words, found in the cache on the cover,  to be circled on a Word Search puzzle found in our brochure.  By participating in the adventure you will be able to discover some interesting things about the Metroparks. The caches will be in place from May 1 through December 2011.  The deadline for puzzle submission is December 1, 2011.
