Dinosaur Train Geocache
The Jim Henson Company has enlisted the help of PBS stations, museums, zoos, and aquariums nationwide to hide Dinosaur Train themed geocaches. Geocaching is a family friendly outdoor adventure that blends technology, gaming and environmental discovery. Each geocache features one of the dinosaurs found on the online Dinosaur Train Field Guide and contains educational information related to that dinosaur.
The Blue Ridge PBS Dinosaur Train geocache coordinates are: N 37° 14.883 W 079° 58.538
What Is Geocaching?
Geocaching is a modern day, worldwide treasure hunt that began in 2000. Participants can both hide and seek containers called geocaches. To hide a geocache, participants pick a location and post the longitude and latitude coordinates online. To seek a geocache, participants visit a site like Geocaching.com to search for caches hidden in their area. Using the coordinates posted, seekers can begin their treasure hunt!
Geocache finders are not supposed to take the geocache once they've found it. There is a log book inside where finders can sign their name and announce their success. The geocache should be returned to its hiding spot when finders are finished. Geocaches can remove an item from the geocache but are requested to put in a replacement item of equal or greater value.
