Fall Into Nature

Once again Conservation Halton held their Fall Into Nature event throughout their 6 conservation area. A number of members from the Ontario Geocaching Association volunteered their time to host a geocaching booth at Hilton Falls and do geocaching demos over the entire weekend. The Conservation area was full of people and the response at our booth was excellent with 93 people coming by on Saturday and 116 on Sunday. There was a wide array of people who dropped by to chat, from several experienced geocachers to those that have tried it a few times and those that just wanted to find out more about geocaching or who were trying it for the first time at Hilton Falls that weekend. One of the amusing things to see was one boy using a GPS for the first time trying out the demo cache. He was following the arrow on the GPS straight to the cache and instead of going around a bushy tree, he made his way right through the tree.  An interesting fact that was discovered while comparing the handouts from this year and last is that last year at this time there were 15,000 caches in Ontario and now there are already over 22,000 caches. Thanks to emzernask, geocite, res2100 and Ellesche for helping out this weekend and to those that have taken their time to place and maintain their caches within Hilton Falls, giving people caches to find.
