Geocaching is a world wide treasure hunt that uses a little bit of technology through GPS to find your cache.
With almost 3 million caches, there are some right in our backyard here in Wausau. Four caches can be found at the Robert W. Monk Gardens that conveniently give you a tour of the beautiful grounds while searching for caches.
The Robert W. Monk Gardens also offers a Letterboxing program that mirrors geocaching, but instead of GPS technology participants can just use clues. Both of these activities are very family friendly and children can also participate.
