King County launches geocaching at parks
October 16, 2012
King County Parks launched a GPS-driven treasure hunt Oct. 6 to recognize land protected in the past 30 years.
Participants can join the King County Conservation Futures GeoTour. The treasure hunt to 20 King County Parks cache sites is designed to raise awareness about the 111,000 acres of land the Conservation Futures Program has preserved in the past 30 years.
The initial 190 people to fill a GeoTour Passport with 20 unique stamps found in cache boxes earn a commemorative coin.

The first parkland purchased using Conservation Futures Program dollars consisted of 1,400 acres on Cougar Mountain.
