Geocaching event planned at Goll Woods 4.22.09

Written by David Green.

A spring wildflower walk is scheduled April 25 at Goll Woods as part of the Ohio DNR’s NatureCache program. Hikes are planned at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The new NatureCache series combines naturalist-led interpretive hikes with global positioning system (GPS) technology.

“It’s a great chance for the whole family to enjoy the beauty of Ohio's special places using today's popular technology-GPS units,” said Chief Steve Maurer, Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Natural Areas and Preserves.

Goll Woods features an old growth forest on a 321-acre setting.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. All pre-registered participants (over age 18) will be entered into a prize drawing for two Garmin GPS units, compliments of Gander Mountain.
