Earthcaches are a special kind of geocache, that set a geological challenge rather than having a physical cache to find. There are lots of Earthcaches in Scotland, and potential to create more and to publicise them as a way for people to engage with Scotland’s geodiversity: with the growing popularity of GPS-enabled smartphones it is easier than ever before to take part.
The Scottish Geodiversity Forum is organising an Earthcache workshop in Holyrood Park on Saturday 4 February, 10am-1pm. Meet at the Education Centre for an indoor discussion session – 1 Queen’s Drive, Edinburgh, EH8 8HG, followed by an excursion in the Park to explore potential Earthcaches.
The workshop is free to attend, places are limited to please book by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Or get in touch if you can’t attend but would like to be kept informed of developments.
