A huge thank you to Central Point Parks and Rec, Nikki Petersen, Elizabeth Blodget, Holiday Inn Express and Suites (Central Point), JC Brown, and everyone who came down to participate in the fun!
There are still a number of coins left and passports can be picked up during regular business hours at Central Point City Hall in the Parks Department or anytime from the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Central Point off Peninger. Passports can be returned to either site to exchange for this year’s Geocoin.
Here we are, getting closer and closer to our big Discover Central Point 2018 Geocoin Challenge event! This year is set to offer 20 new places for you to check out and explore in order to fulfill your passport and earn your limited edition Geocoin celebrating the event. Only 150 coins will be handed out this year, will you be one of the lucky ones to earn your coin? Come join us this Saturday, June 23rd, from 9 am to 3 pm at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Central Point as we kick off the event!
Here we are in the middle of June and still playing catch-up with scheduled events and activities. We’ve added some of the events for June and July and will be working to add more in the future. Stay tuned for more!
Uncover a new world of Hidden Creatures!
Recently, 13 sightings of magical creatures and otherworldly beings have been reported. Embark on a global adventure to try to witness these mythical creatures in their unique habitats. From June 27 through July 25, earn up to 13 mythical creature souvenirs by finding geocaches and attending events.
For centuries, Hidden Creatures have fueled the imagination and provided supernatural explanations for the world around us. Once written off as simple mythology, a recent series of events now indicate these creatures might actually be real. Your challenge is to look for these creatures in their natural habitats and confirm the existence of as many as you can.
Each week a new habitat will be introduced, beginning with Hidden Creatures of the forest and ending with a magical creature who lives among the stars. See how fast you can witness all of the creatures or take your time to find each one over all four weeks, the challenge is up to you!
Find geocaches or attend events to increase your chances of seeing these mythical creatures and earn up to 13 souvenirs. Plus, share your adventures with #hiddencreatures for a chance to be featured on the Geocaching Blog.
Let’s all get together to kick off this 4 week adventure at a place well known for their classic and exotic meat selections: Jaspers Cafe! (2739 N Pacific Hwy, Medford OR 97501)
We’ll gather at 6 PM and go over the information for the Hidden Creatures adventure and help everyone earn their first Hidden Creature Souvenir, BIGFOOT!!
When: Wednesday, June 27th
Where: Jaspers Cafe (2739 N Pacific Hwy, Medford)
What time: 6pm-7pm
