Green Valley students learn about geocaching


Many times, the hidden case or canister has a log for the finder to fill out or a little trinket. The fun, Steele said, is trying to find the geocaches. She uses a GPS device when geocaching. The students, however, had no such device.

“It was harder than I thought it would be,” Hiser said after his group was successful in finding the geocache. “After we looked for it, she (Steele) gave us a hint and we found it.”

“I like doing this because you can hunt and find treasure,” said Steele’s daughter, Anna.

“The kids are loving this,” Case said. “This is a smart group and I would like to do more stuff like this year. This is a lot better than learning this with a book and worksheet.”

Steele said geocaches are rarely buried. She hid a few in the grass Friday and one inside a tree trunk.

“I didn’t want to make it too easy,” she said. “This is a hard way to geocache. All they had was a map and the coordinates.

“I have had to go to some scary places to find geocaches. Some people can be very creative when hiding geocaches.”
