Getting Started

Geocaching Logo

The Mount Vernon Parks and Recreation is pleased to offer free beginning GeoClasses for those wanting more information. The instructors are local 'legends' of Geocaching. They will give a brief classroom overview of how Geocaching got it's start, what Geocaches look like, some tools and equipment you may want, and the basics of GPS. From there, they will venture out to locate a some Caches.

The classes are held at the Library. Feel free to bring your own GPS device. For regular GPS units, you should know how to enter coordinates. If you have a GPS enabled device (smart phone) there are many free apps available. Wear clothes appropriate for the weather, and shoes for walking around the downtown area.
