EarthCache™

Let the Earth be Your Teacher

The very first EarthCache ("EarthCache I" [GCHFT2]) was placed by user "geoaware" on 10 Jan. 2004 on a headland in New South Wales, Australia. Since then, more than 6.3 million people have logged visits to EarthCache sites, and the number is growing exponentially. GSA is very proud to be part of the exciting geocaching community and hope we can continue to add value and wonderful Earth science experiences through the EarthCache program.
