July Geo Explorers Challenge – Explore Maplewood
July 24 @ 6:00 AM - 9:00 PM CDT
An event every day that begins at 6:00 AM, repeating until July 26, 2020
The July Geo Explorers Challenge is to find a minimum of 8 geocaches within Maplewood parks and open spaces. Your challenge packet will be emailed to all registrants prior to the challenge start. These will include your geocache passport of 20 caches, coordinates and Google Map links and challenge rules. The GPS coordinates will get you close to the geocache. Once you are at the coordinate you will have to start looking for the geocache, which will be a Ziploc container with a blue top.
Along the way we will encourage participants to share their progress through pictures that will be shared here and on our social media platforms. Participants will also be asked for weekly progress updates which will be compiled in our “Challenge Progress Log”.
