I would really love your help this Saturday in giving back to the City of Bloomington's Parks and Recreation department for providing us with such great parks in our community.
Wapehani Mountain Bike Park Trail Beautification
Saturday, July 28, 9am-12pm at Wapehani Mountain Bike Park in Bloomington
Bloomington Parks and Recreation mentioned that they need some help
from community groups to maintain and restore some of Bloomington's most
scenic natural areas. So we're having a service project to give back to
our local park system! We'll be having a CITO service event to help the
City of Bloomington Parks & Rec department with invasive plant
mapping and removal at Wapehani Mountain Bike Park. Did you know that
Wapehani Mountain Bike Park was the first mountain bike park in the
state of Indiana?
I told them we'd have about 20 volunteers for the event, so please RSVP on the event cache page
give me an idea of how many people might be coming, so I know how many
more volunteers I will need to recruit. Attire:
Please wear clothing appropriate to the weather that you don't mind
getting a little dirty. We also request that everyone wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes. NO SANDALS PERMITTED
Everything you need to know is at http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC3NX6NPicnic in the Park II - Celebrate International Geocaching Day
Saturday, August 18th at park to be determined
Hold the date
for our second annual Picnic in the Park to celebrate International
Geocaching Day. We had a lovely potluck lunch & fun day at Winslow
Woods last year, and I'm taking suggestions for other Bloomington area
parks to host it at this year. I was thinking Karst Farm Park. If anyone
else would like to help plan this event, please let me know! Or if
you'd be willing to chip in for the shelter rental...
few people asked me to setup a Facebook group, so that people could
meet, share and discuss geocaching stuff on Facebook. Our Facebook Page
that we've had going has been great for announcements, but not informal
discussions. Use it to ask for hints on caches you can't find or see if
anyone's interested in going geocaching sometime with you. It is
intended to be more social than what we have here on our e-mail list. So
here it is: http://www.facebook.com/groups/133110390112003/
Feel free to join if you're interested.
Hope to see you at an upcoming event! Let me know if you have any questions!
