Geocaching is a fun treasure hunt game that has developed into a popular hobbyist sport, worldwide. Harbor Country and our surrounding area are home to hundreds of hidden “caches” waiting to be discovered. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to get out there and spend some time touring our beautiful countrysides, and quiet back roads in search of whatever adventure awaits.

Geocaching at Fernwood – With 105 acres of diverse habitats and structures, Fernwood is an ideal place for geocaching! Thanks to the generous help of local geocachers from the GeoCats group, Fernwood is now home to five new and updated geocaches. A modern-day scavenger hunt, geocaching involves using a GPS unit to locate hidden caches, or containers. Each one has a clever theme and there are many creative twists on a basic cache. It is an ideal activity for getting out and exploring nature and can be done with people of all ages. If you are interested in placing a cache at Fernwood, please contact naturalist Wendy Jones.
