Calling all modern day treasure hunters ... the 2019 Jacksonville GeoCache Challenge is coming!
Welcome to the 2019 Jacksonville Geocache Challenge! JaxParks is teaming up again with the Friends of JaxParks Geocachers, Visit Jacksonville and REI to present another amazing Challenge that will take you to parks and landmarks all over Jacksonville. In this high-tech treasure hunt, participants will have the opportunity to earn a newly designed "geocoin" by finding 25 of the 30 hidden caches.
How It Works
Thirty containers, or caches, are hidden in parks and public spaces throughout the city. Participants will use a global positions system (GPS) device to locate the caches. There will be a kick-off event on Saturday, August 31, 2019 at Balis Community Center (1513 LaSalle St, Jacksonville, FL 32207) which will include an opportunity to download the GPS coordinates for the Challenge caches. For those not able to attend, the GPS coordinates will be published on www.geocaching.com on September 1, 2019.
The official brochure, verification passport and additional details and rules for this year's Challenge can be found at our partner's website: http://jaxparkschallenge.wordpress.com/.
To obtain your trackable coin, take a completed passport to REI in Jacksonville. The first 150 participants to check in with a unique geocaching name will receive a coin. REI Retailers, is located at 4862 Big Island Drive in Jacksonville's Town Center.
