Geocaching in the Conejo Valley
What is Geocaching?
A wonderful, family-friendly outdoor activity, geocaching is a treasure hunt using devices such as a handheld GPS or a mobile smart phone to locate where a geocache is hidden. Geocaches are hidden by other people called “geocachers” and listed on the geocaching.com website. If you have a smartphone or handheld GPS, you already have everything you need to get started! Create a free geocaching account today at geocaching.com.
If you would like to set up a geocaching class for your group, party or organization, contact the Outdoor Unit at 805-495-2163.
