Easton Geocaching

The Easton Public Library, in collaboration with the Pollinator Pathway (a conservation project of the Easton Garden Club), is very excited to offer this town-wide program for all ages.

 

The challenge: find eight Easton destinations which encourage being active and outdoors. Each destination will have a small marker with a QR code and some information on local plant life. 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 throughout the fall.

How to Find the Destinations

  1. On your smartphone or tablet, open a maps app.

  2. In the search box at the top, type your coordinates. Here is an example: 

  3. Decimal degrees (DD): 41.40338, 2.17403 Remember to put a comma in between the two coordinates, and include the minus sign in the second coordinate.

  4. You’ll see a pin at your coordinates.

  5. That's your destination.

  6. Look for the marker, then scan the QR code and submit the form.

  7. Now, on to the next destination.
