Aware of Our Water: Spring Creek Geocache Game
Players are directed to find various landmarks around the Centre Region that tap into and capture the beauty of our Spring Creek Watershed. But rather than find a "cache," players to photos or selfies at game locations to prove they've found each cache, and post them to the game's social media site (e.g., Instagram or Facebook group page)..
Cache challenges may include
Find a duck at Big Srping
Find Millbrook Marsh
Find the creek bank restoration project at the Military Museum in Boalsburg
Find Mussers Gap
Find the solar project at the University Joint Authority
Find the Shingletown Gap Reservoir
