The event will be cancelled in the case of rain.

*More about geocaching: Looking for a COVID safe and different way to play “Hide and Seek” that uses GPS and trinkets (NOT people)?  Let’s Go Outdoors will be offering FREE Beginner Geocaching (pronounced gee-oh-cash-ing) lessons for adults and families at Awbury Arboretum’s newly restored pond area.  You will learn to use a handheld GPS device to look for caches (hidden containers) that hold items that can be turned in for a small prize.  Drop-In between 10:30 AM and 1:30 PM and stay to find 1 cache or all of those that are hidden.  Look for Let’s Go Outdoors geocaching activity at Awbury’s Washington Lane SEPTA Station entrance to the Arboretum.
