Geocaching is an activity where an individual hides a container, with an item enclosed, in an inconspicuous place to be found by other participants via coordinates that are provided. Once located, the participants will take the item and replace it with a new one. Many caches include a logbook for the finder to sign and date. 

You can participate in geocaching via or by downloading the Geocaching app.
