Finding the Eggs
There are a few ways to locate the first 10 eggs:
1. Geocaching.com or the Geocaching App
The eggs are posted as 'traditional caches' on geocaching.com. You may download the app or register online for a free account. An annual subscription is available through geocaching.com, but is not required to view the Great Easter Egg Hunt caches.
View this video for a how to guide on geocaching!
2. GPS Coordinates
The individual GPS coordinates for the caches are posted above. You may use the GPS application of your choice to locate the caches and then travel to the site to find them.
We recommend Google Earth or Google Maps.
The Golden Egg
Each of the initial 10 Eggs have a letter of the alphabet. Collect each of these letters and use them along with a final clue (to be released on Saturday, April 20) to locate the Golden Egg. The Golden Egg will only be available on 4/20 and 4/21 and everyone who locates it will receive raffle tickets for the Child Prevention Month raffle to be held at the Community Fun Day on April 27!
