Easton Geocaching

Trees in background. In the center a photo of Easton, Connecticut on a map. Text at the top reads, "read around" and text over map reads, "Easton".
Iphone in the woods. Phone is open to a map.

The Challenge: Find eight Easton destinations which encourage being active and outdoors. Each destination will have a marker with a QR code and some information on the historical significance of the site. Scan the QR code with your phone and fill out the short form. Now, on to the next destination. This is a fun and active way to discover some beautiful Easton destinations. Easton Geocaching will run through the summer. Everyone who visits all 8 sites and fills out the forms attached to the QR codes will be entered into a raffle for a framed reproduction of Beers’ 1867 map of Easton donated by the historical society.
In collaboration with the Historical Society of Easton
