SNCITO3

The South Nation Conservation Authority, http://www.nation.on.ca/en/, is the Conservation Authority responsible for most of Eastern Ontario. The South Nation River watershed starts near Brockville and extends as far east as Maxville and as far north as Ottawa before the South Nation empties into the Ottawa River at Plantagenet. You can find a map of the watershed athttp://www.nation.on.ca/en/about-us/watershed-maps/.

Through the initiative of the Geocachers of Eastern Ontario (GEO) http://www.geocachersofeasternontario.com/ a close collaboration between the SNCA and locale geocaching has developed. One of those collaborations is the SNCITO, an annual CITO event that has geocachers help out with a clean-up of the many properties managed by the SNCA.

This year’s effort, the third such annual event, SNCITO3, http://coord.info/GC3CP2X, will be on April 28th at the High Falls Conservation Area in Casselman Ontario. The SNCA provides a tremendous breakfast free of charge and in return teams of ‘cachers will spread out to the surrounding SNCA properties and collect tons of garbage. Oh, and there’s a few caches placed for the event too!

Everyone is invited to come and join the community for a great day of food, community service and geocaching.
