Teens, ages 12–15, are invited out on a high-tech outside adventure in the Geocache Challenge for Teens on Saturday, September 27 from 1:30–4:30 p.m. at Pleasant Valley Conservation Area, 13315 Pleasant Valley Road, Woodstock.
Are you ready for an exciting adventure off the main trails? This action packed day will begin with a short lesson on what a GPS unit is and how to correctly use one. Participants will then head out as a group with only a GPS unit and a map to geocache our way through the woods, wetlands, and prairies of Pleasant Valley. Each cache will contain a group challenge or a fun nature exploration activity that must be completed before moving on. GPS units will be provided. Bring a water bottle and dress to go off trail.
