Easton Geocaching

The Easton Public Library is very excited to once again 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 information about the destination. 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.
