Part 7: Geocaching in Alberta Parks

In geocaching, you use a GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver to navigate to a "geocache" - a hidden object or natural feature. Started in 2000, geocaching is a growing outdoor recreational activity that combines physical activity, technology, the outdoors and the thrill of exploration. It's an intergenerational, low impact, healthy activity that promotes natural heritage learning.

Natural and recreational areas, including Alberta's parks, are used for geocaching adventures. There are more than 1,000 geocaches in the provincial parks system, with requests for additional cache sites continuing to submitted.
