Ohio Geocaching Challenge

From The Ohio Department of Natural Resources is kicking off a summerlong geocaching challenge for outdoor enthusiasts with GPS units.

I’m glad to see some jurisdictions starting to realize the great potential geocaching has to draw visitors to public parks. I would love to see Ontario Parks do something like this – I would happily pay for day passes to provincial parks far more often if I could geocache in them. I understand that Ontario Parks and the MNR have a mandate to protect the land, but I wish they would understand that geocachers are quite willing to work within the scope of that mandate.
