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. With 3 million active geocaches around the world, the hunt can be taken internationally. Visit the Geocaching webpage for more information.
Adventure Lab (ongoing)
The Geocaching Adventure Lab is an app that allows you to complete in engaging scavenger hunts. Adventure Labs differ from traditional Geocaching as they don't feature physical cache containers, just pure virtual exploration, problem-solving, and fun!

Partners for Beautification Program
Residents looking to participate in other ways can consider the Partners for Beautification Program, which promotes citizen stewardship in Richmond. This program supports individuals, groups and businesses looking to clean up litter by adopting an area in their neighbourhood, or engaging in shoreline clean-ups along the many trails that line the island city.
