GPS / Geocaching

Students using a GPS receiver The NRD has established rules for geocaching on its community wetlands management areas, trails and wildlife management areas.

Geocaching is an activity that uses Global Positioning System technology to find hidden items. The items are usually sealed containers with a logbook and inexpensive trinkets inside. The finder makes an entry in the logbook, takes something out of the cache, puts something else in, and then returns the cache to the spot where they found it. Several geocaches on NRD land are registered at www.geocaching.com.

The NRD wants to keep caches from being hidden in places that may have an adverse environmental impact, places that might be in the path of prescribed burns or places that are unsafe. That's why we have an easy permitting process for anyone wanting to establish a geocache on NRD public access land.
