GEOCACHE WASHINGTON CROSSING STATE PARK
(Preteens – adult) Geocaching is a high-tech update on the old-fashioned scavenger hunt game, which utilizes GPS (global positioning system) technology to locate objects hidden in the park. Participants will learn how to obtain information and hints from the Geocaching.com website, on the location of dozens of geocache sites in and around the state park. They will then use handheld GPS devices to go out and find as many caches as possible. Once a cache is found, participants typically will sign in on the log contained within and then take an object from the cache box after leaving a trinket for subsequent geocachers. Participants should bring a pocket full of trinkets to exchange when they locate caches. Trinkets can include small toys and balls, plastic jewelry, pens, pencils, scratch pads, patches, action figures, coins, etc. A limited number of GPS navigation devices will be made available to participants on a first come, first served basis. Bring your own handheld GPS device or smart phone with Geocaching app installed if you have one. Advanced registration and payment required. Fee: $2.00/person. Please note: due to limitations in equipment, digital RSVPs on the Meetup site will not be accepted for this Meetup. Please register for this event by calling the Washington Crossing State Park Nature Center directly. Phone: (609)[masked]

What we're about

The Washington Crossing Park Association of New Jersey (WCPA) works to preserve, enhance and advocate for the park and the history it represents. Visit the Association's website at http://www.washingtoncrossingparkassociation.com .

THE PARK: The Washington Crossing State Park of NJ is the site of one of the most important events of the American Revolution—the Christmas Crossing of 1776.

Originally preserved for its historical significance, the park is also well known for its trails and wildlife habitat. It supports an interesting assortment of plants and a splendid variety of spring and summer wildflowers. Among the most notable species of wildlife are whitetail deer, fox, raccoon, great-horned owl, screech owl, red-tailed hawk, red-shouldered hawk and Eastern bluebird. The park is popular for picnicking, hiking, biking, kayaking, and, in the winter, for cross-country skiing.

You can visit the park's official state website here (http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/washcros.html), or download a map of the park here (http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/parks/maps/WashingtonCrossingAreaMapFinalDraft.pdf).
