Are you tired of watching TV or playing video games? Come spend some time geocaching at the Hawk Rise Sanctuary in Linden. Geocaching is a fun, outdoor activity for all ages. People can participate alone or with a group. You will learn how to  navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and hope to find a cache. The cache is a hidden container that holds a small prize and a log (notebook or paper) for the person that finds it. Please join me for an educational and fun experience.

Dress for the weather. Children must be accompanied by an adult. 
Please call 908-276-7421 to register or with questions.
