CITO event on the beeline
I am sure you have seen this from the Geocaching website...
(Every April, geocachers around the world get together and clean up their local parks. It's just one way we can contribute to the maintenance of our outdoor spaces and to say "thanks" to the land managers that help to make our parks a great place for geocaching. Learn about how you can start your own CITO event, or just how you and your family can CITO every time you go geocaching. Visit CacheInTrashOut.org for more information.)
let's have this briefing right at the coordinates like last time (N 33° 29.750 W 111° 48.280) The briefing will begin at 8:30am to get instructions, vests, and bags, snap a group photo, sign forms/log book, etc. We will then get started and work till about 10:45 am or so.
CITO event in tuscon area
Join us in helping to make Tucson a cleaner and more beautiful location. Geocachers are adopting the Alamo Wash, at least a portion of it, and we plan to make it the cleanest wash in town.
Anyone who has been in the Tucson area to geocache knows the name of one of our lovely locals. The Woodcutter has spent many hours designing beautiful carvings that geocachers have gathered and collected over time.
A few of us remember when she first started bringing us to the Alamo wash with her caches and we have grown very fond of our dear friend. What better way to say thank you for all she has done for us then to adopt her favorite wash?
Tucson Clean and Beautiful is a nonprofit organization, conducts environmental volunteer programs in waste reduction and recycling, land stewardship, urban forestry, and beautification. As of this week, Geocachers have joined the force of the movement and we ask your help in keeping our city clean.
Our first cleanup day will be March 25th, 2006 and we ask for all the help we can get.
This CITO event will begin at 8am meeting at the parking lot on the SouthEast corner of Grant and Craycroft along the wash. N 32 15.018, W 110 52.352
We have some safety guidelines which will be covered at the meeting, so please try to arrive early so we can get started on time.
Cachers to Participate in NPL Day Event in Phx
The day will consist of two parts: A �Trail Beautification Project� from 7 to 9 AM and a Recreation Fair from 9 AM to 2 PM. Volunteers for the Trail Project will receive breakfast, souvenir T-shirt, water, snacks, and lunch. During the Recreation Fair, we will be manning one of about 50 tables open to the public to talk about Geocaching. We�ve been asked to ��introduce folks to your hobby and educate them on the proper etiquette as far as minimum impact and �Leave no trace� �. Last year they had an estimated 5,000 attendees during the Recreation Fair and anticipate a similar number this year.
What we�ll need will be volunteers for the Trail Project, and volunteers to staff the table. My thought is two or more people at the table for two-hour shifts, depending on how many volunteers we have. You�ll be able to do both the Trail Project and the table if you�d like. I�m hoping we�ll have enough participation that no one will have to do more than two hours at the table unless they really want to.
The text of the email I received, a Microsoft Word file about the event from Phoenix Parks and Recreation (who are co-sponsors locally), and two one-page PDF documents about the day may be found at http://tinyurl.com/7s89g.
I think it is important that we do this as a community. If you want to participate, let me know either by contacting me on the azgeocaching listserver or emailing me through my geocaching.com profile. Thank you.
Tonto National Forest (mostly) reopened
Adopt-A-Highway Program Need To Be Adopted
Remember, we have two signs up, so if the cleaning is done regularly enough, it should look great and be a shining example of what Geocachers are about. Please let me know as soon as possible (on or off listserv) so that I can get the permit transferred and you can schedule another CITO event.
Thank you in advance to whoever takes this on! It may sound like a lot of work, but it's really no more complicated than making a pb&j sandwich and then explaining how you made it. :)
