Geocaching Hemlock Lake
On Sunday, 4 June 2017 from 2:00 p.m. until 4 p.m. the LLCA will host a “Cash In - Trash Out” Geocaching event on Hemlock Lake. The goal is to clear some of the trash from the trails around Hemlock Lake and to introduce new cashers to geocaching. Seasoned cachers are also welcome.
We will meet at the pavilion at the Hemlock Lake park on Rix Hill road Hemlock NY. We will have an informational and social meet-and-greet at the pavilion before walking/hiking to our geocache co-ordinates.
We will have some gloves and bags. But if you have your own gloves and extra grocery bags to reuse please bring along too, as well as sunscreen, bug spray, long pants, sturdy shoes, and water. We want to get some fresh air, and lend a hand, offering a few hours of our time to help clear the trails, making them safer and more accessible for everyone to enjoy. There are three multi’s and seven basic caches in the first two miles of trails found on both sides from the north end of the lake.
We will have PlantSpirit on hand for botanical information and guidance about invasive species and Carol from LLCA to remind us how to have fun with good body mechanics and awareness in the community. Sophydra will provide technical support to new geocaching App users. Though we want to focus on nature and on connecting face-to-face, we recognize this global positioning activity requires some use of devices in the woods. Bring your hand-held GPS devices, charged up cell phones, power sticks and extra phone batteries if you have them.
If there is enough interest at this event, we’ll set-up future events with new hides.
Call Carol Williams with any questions at 585-727-2230.
