Hueco Tanks State Park and Historic Site will hold a Geocaching 101 Workshop from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, September 21st at the park, 6900 Hueco Tanks Rd. #1, El Paso, Texas 79938. Geocaching is like a scavenger hunt using GPS units to find the coordinates of treasures! Geocaching is a great way for families to explore the outdoors together. Participants should bring water, snacks, and a GPS unit if they have one. Dress for the desert environment: sunblock, a hat, long sleeves, and hiking boots are recommended.
There will be a limited number of GPS units available; reservations are required. Call (915) 849-6684 to make reservations for the program. There is a $2 activity fee for ages 5 and above in addition to the $7 entrance fee for ages 13 and above. Due to the sensitive nature of the site, pets are not allowed on trails; for their safety pets may not be left in vehicles unattended.
Another Geocaching 101 Workshop will be held at the Franklin Mountains State Park, from 9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, September 28. Reservations required. See http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/calendar/geocaching-101-workshop-2 for more information.
