Washington State Parks Launch Centennial GeoTour

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. - The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission and the Washington State Geocaching Association are launching the Washington State Parks Centennial GeoTour.

The State Parks Centennial GeoTour features 100 geocaches in 100 state parks to celebrate 100 years. 

Geocaching is a family-oriented recreational activity where participants locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS unit. The GeoTour will encourage visitors to explore Washington state parks, enjoy recreational opportunities and experience the outdoors. 

The State Parks Centennial GeoTour features geocaches hidden at points of interest in state parks all across Washington. The geocaches may convey a historical story, reveal hidden vantage points or bring visitors to scenic locations.

The first 180 participants to find 50 caches can earn a silver GeoCoin, and the first 30 participants to find 100 caches can earn a gold GeoCoin. 

You can find a printable map and passport, along with GeoTour rules and information by clicking here.

Washington State Parks, WSGA and Groundspeak are providing the funding for the Centennial GeoTour.
