LA DEN Geocaching Day ~ May 30!

On May 30, 2009 we will host our first-ever DEN Geocaching Day!  Every STAR Discovery Educator is encouraged to venture out with some colleagues on May 30 and have some fun geocaching.  Do you want to join us.

For muggles (non-geocachers) and pros alike, STAR Discovery Educators Bridget Belardi and Conni Mulligan will host a “Geocaching 101? webinar to get us ready.  The webinar will answer the basic questions of “What is geoaching?” and “How do I get started?”  as well as emphasize the curricular connections of geocaching.

The webinar will be offered two more times:

Visit https://discoveryed.webex.com/ec0509l/eventcenter/event/eventAction.do?siteurl=discoveryed&theAction=listevents_date to register for one of the webinars.

So now that you have a resource to get you started, what exactly will the day look like?  Well, we have a group of DEN Guides (experienced geocachers) who have agreed to host events in their areas.

You can join one of the DEN Guides or if there isn’t an event in your area, we encourage you to form a group (and let us know) and give geocaching a try for the day.

The event in LA is being hosted by Louise Prejean in Lafayette.  If you are interested in joining Louise, please e-mail her at lprejean@louisiana.edu

No matter if you are going with a group or venturing out on your own, add your name to the list of DEN Geocachers at http://tinyurl.com/dl233t.  You might see someone in your area with whom you can connect.
