Upcoming Events

Geocaching at Kings Gap
Aug. 19, 2007. Held from 2 p.m.-3:30 p.m., Cumberland County's Kings Gap Environmental Education Center will offer a free program on geocaching. For those looking for new ways to use their GPS or a good reason to buy one, geocaching is a sport that can take one literally around the world in pursuit of tiny “treasures.” This latest recreational craze combines new technology with old-fashioned walking, while using clues to find hidden caches. Bob Zinn (Zinnware), a local geocacher, will first present a slide program overview of the sport. Afterward, participants will have the chance to use their GPS units to locate some temporary caches at Kings Gap. Although not required, it is recommended that those attending bring their own unit and know how to use it. For more information, contact
