Geocaching in Cottonwood

What is geocaching?

Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

When you find a Cottonwood Parks and Recreation (CWPR) cache: sign the logbook, take a sticker for your Cottonwood Geocache Passport, and return it to the cache. 

When you are finished, put the geocache back exactly as you found it, even if you think you see a better spot for it.
