What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game that uses a smartphone or GPS device.  Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates to find the prize - a hidden geocache container. Did you know that there are over 6 million geocachers worldwide and 2.5 million active geocaches?!

What is Richmond Geo-Quest?
It is a series of 30 hidden geocaches in parks, on trails, and at community facilities. On your quest, explore the Island City and discover Richmond's unique natural and cultural heritage. Find all the caches, complete the passport and earn a limited edition trackable travel tag.
