Geocaching Adventures with SOGeo
August 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Alex and Amanda Smith, owners of Southern Oregon Geocaching (SOGeo), will discuss geocaching, the fastest-growing family outdoor adventure treasure hunt, as the next topic of the Guild Lecture Series on Wednesday, August 16 from 12 noon – 1:30 p.m. in the Large Meeting Room of the Medford Branch Library, 205 South Central Avenue.
Geocaching started in 2000 and in recent years has expanded into one of the hottest adventure activities for all ages. Geocaching is a treasure hunt using GPS technology to find real-life treasures hidden in plain sight all around the world. Here in Southern Oregon, from the top of Mt. Ashland to the banks of the Rogue River and all places in between, there are hidden geocaches and treasures to be found. Geocaching is perhaps one of the best ways to find new locations in your own town or discover awesome, perhaps secret, locations anywhere your journey takes you while making new friends along the way!
A GPS device or smartphone, walking shoes, something to write with, and a sense of adventure is all you need to get started geocaching. This lecture will be hands-on, so participants should go to Geocaching.com to set up a free basic membership before coming to the program.
