CORNWALL, Ontario – The Raisin Region Conservation Area (RRCA) is internet hosting a geocaching treasure hunt, the Raisin Region GeoAdventure. This is a public seek for 20 caches scattered round important websites all through the watershed jurisdiction in Eastern Ontario. 

Geocaching is a world-wide outside exercise that lets contributors use their smartphones to find hidden containers, which were positioned there by different geocashers.  

“The Raisin Region GeoAdventure is an engaging way for both new and seasoned geocachers to explore the RRCA’s jurisdiction and learn about natural features and environmental projects in the region” mentioned Vincent Pilon, RRCA’s Public Information Coordinator. “Some of the cache sites include an edible forest, habitat restoration projects, and watershed management infrastructure, to name a few.”  

All 20 caches hidden include a QR code that unlocks digital content material about the native space. Twelve of the caches are numbered, and when the third letter of every GeoAdventure code is put collectively, you may enter an 11-character password to unlock a secret webpage that results in the remaining geocache. 

“The first 100 families to unlock the final cache will earn a limited-edition, Raisin Region GeoAdventure geocoin,” Pilon mentioned. “Each geocoin is engraved with a unique tracking number, and can be either kept as a trophy, or placed inside a cache, to then be set in motion by other geocachers who move the coin from cache to cache, with its progress on display at geocaching.com.”  

Pilon acknowledged that each one Cornwall geocaches will be accessed with out the use of a private automobile, and that there have been a number of caches launched to Akwesasne. 

Funding for the Raisin Region GeoAdventure was offered by the City of Cornwall.
