Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2014

The 11th annual Metroparks Geocaching Adventure is operated by members of the Michigan Geocaching Organization in partnership with the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. It is a series of geocaches placed and maintained by MiGO members. 

Mark your calendar! The Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 12th annual picnic has been scheduled for September 12, 2015 at Lake Erie Metropark. As always this is a Geocache Event celebrating the cooperation between the Metroparks and the Geocaching community. This year’s picnic will include six new Geocaches in the park, games, prize drawings, kid’s activities and a potluck picnic lunch. More information will be available when the Geocache Event web page is published later in the spring. 

The Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2015 will be launched on May 1. 2015 

The drawing for the 2015 Metropark Annual Passes was held on December 17. Those winning the drawing have their Geocaching name in RED.

Welcome to the 11th Annual Metroparks Geocaching Adventure 2014

SERIES COMPLETION

In order to complete the series, you will need to find the special cache hidden in each of the 13 Metroparks. Located in the cover of each Geocache you will find a special code, such as C=7.You will want to write down this code for later use when you have visited all 13 caches. 
You will enter these codes in an on-line form which will ask you for the code for each Geocache and the date you found it. 
The on-line form may be found HERE.

These codes will also form the coordinates for a BONUS CACHE which will be published the day of the Picnic. The coordinates will be formed using the numbers represented by the codes:
N   A BC.DEF    W  GH  IJ.KLM 



The theme for this year's series is Invasive Plant Species in the Metroparks. 
Information about the invasive plant species in each park is shown on a laminated card in the cover of the Geocache. The name of the invasive species found in a given park will also be displayed in the cache. Carefully copy down that name and put it in your copy of the MGA2014 Brochure, which can be found HERE. These names may be placed in the crossword puzzle. 

MGA2014 Picnic
There will be a Picnic held on Saturday, September 13 at Stony Creek Metropark. This will be the 11th annual picnic and they have always been enjoyed. The picnic will again be registered as an Event Cache. Keep up with progress in the development of plans for this picnic by clicking HERE.
