Geocaching in the Garden

At the Must See Oregon event, held at the Garden on May 17th, stop by our booth to try out our newest activity: Geocaching!

Available as an activity for experienced geocachers and those who are new to the idea, there will be caches placed throughout the Garden and Resort grounds. Log your finds on the geocaching.com website and be a part of the Must See Oregon event. This is a great activity for the whole family – ages 4 and up will love geocaching.

  • Experienced geocachers: Stop by the booth to pick up the event passport!
  • New geocachers: We will have experienced geocachers at the booth who can help you set up your geocaching.com account (for free), teach you about geocaching, download your coordinates and point you in the right direction.

If you would like to have a little additional help, or if you do not have a gps unit, we will have hourly “guided” geocaching with expert geocachers. We will have a small number of GPS units to borrow. These will begin on the hour from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sign up at the Oregon Garden booth.

Turn in your passport and completed survey to be entered into a drawing to win an Oregon Garden membership or room stay at the Oregon Garden Resort.
