Fall is a fun time to geocache

Special from TPWD

Like the outdoors in fall? Like mysteries? Try a digital outdoor treasure hunt - geocaching. It's a great reason to roam as cooler weather and rustling leaves tempt us to spend time in Texas State Parks.
You'll need a GPS unit or smartphone app to find the coordinates (the exact location) of a geocache nearby. Take along a small inexpensive item to swap when you find a cache. Learn more online and find a geocaching lesson or event on the geocaching calendar on the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.
Join the ongoing Texas State Parks Geocache Challenge and set out on your detective adventure, enjoying the natural world along the way!
The TPWD website has a video to help you get started on this interesting family-friendly hobby.
