CITO -- "Cache In, Trash Out" is an ongoing environmental initiative supported by the worldwide geocaching community.

About Nadaka Nature Park

This designated 10-acre open space property was acquired from the Camp Fire organization in 1995. On April 3, 2001 City Council adopted a master plan. A ¼-mile loop nature trail passes by the meadow on the south end. There is also a small nature based play area just off the meadow. The Wilkes East Neighborhood Association has been largely responsible for non-native plant removal work parties, planting of native plants and grant writing for ongoing improvements.

What is Geocaching

Geocaching (pronounced geo-cashing) is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online.

Geocaching is a fairly new sport where you use a GPS to find small containers filled with little trinkets that others have hidden in the woods. Once you find the container, you sign in, date it and if you want you can take a trinket and leave something new for the next person. Trinkets include key chains, buttons, magnets and more. It is also customary to bring a trash bag and gloves so you can pick up any trash that you find along the way.
