About the Challenge

Linn County Conservation wants you to know that there are great public parks right under your nose!  And we think geocaching is the best way to learn about them! We’ve worked with local experts to craft this special multi-cache challenge. It’s all about getting to know your local campgrounds, trails and parks. We’ve selected 25 different places for you to visit. At each location there is a container (cache) hidden. To find the containers you will need to navigate with GPS. It’s technology meets the great outdoors. It’s screen time meets fresh air. It’s the perfect something to do for people who want a destination, an adventure, or a mini road trip. Spend this summer doing the Linn Parks Challenge!
