Education

Article II of the GeocacheAlaska! Inc. by-laws states the reasons for founding our  organization are to:

Promote geocaching as an exciting, family-oriented activity that increases awareness of parks and trail systems.

Provide opportunities for the geocaching community to enjoy geocaching in the area and to meet and socialize with like-minded geocachers.

Increase awareness of geocaching issues in the area through interaction with other outdoor activity groups, geocaching clubs, and the public.

Educate geocachers on low impact geocaching and promote stewardship of our natural resources.

Educate other outdoor enthusiasts on geocaching.

Represent geocaching interests in public forums and to recreation land managers.

Actively promote the "Cache In Trash Out" (CITO) program to help in the maintenance of parks and trail systems.

To meet the heavy commitment to train and educate, GeocacheAlaska! is in the process of creating training materials for use by all geocachers.  The information will be first presented at GeoEducation Events hosted at several Alaskan locations and then posted here in portable document format (pdf) for all geocachers' use and reference.

Please provide us with feedback regarding current content or other topics you would like to see developed.
