CITO Downtown Medford

Fall CITO is upon us!

Come join us for a different style of CITO than we’ve done in the past.  While we usually aim our attention on parks and the greenway, this time we wanted to focus on an area that gets plenty of traffic each day, whether it be by foot or by car, bicycle or skateboard.   Downtown Medford is a wonderful place to walk around, see the sights, learn about the history of the area, or find a bite to eat, but rarely do we take the time to clean up this area and give back to the community.  While this CITO might be a little out of the ordinary, or seem like a large task, we have highlighted a few key blocks of the downtown area that we want to focus on and make a difference.

This CITO will take place on Friday, September 21st, from 6-7pm.  The posted coordinates will bring you to a booth we will have set up where you can sign the event log sheet, grab your trash bags, and begin your quest.  We will have maps available that show the highlighted area of our clean-up effort as well as trash bags and gloves, and you can bring your trash back to the booth when you are finished.  If you have any trash-pickers or other items you’d like to bring, feel free.

We don’t expect to be picking up tons and tons of trash in our efforts, but we do hope that we can make a difference in the downtown area and spread the joy and love of geocaching to others who might see what we are doing.  While we all love being out in nature and finding caches, urban caching is growing more and more each day.  We want to take this CITO opportunity to help the downtown areas and keep our gameboard clean.  We hope to see you come out and join us!
