“I am Conservation”

Mike Bollinger, his daughter, Jessica, and son, Mark, have made geocaching an activity for the whole family. Geocaching involves using a GPS unit to find hidden caches that others have left. The caches usually include “treasure” that finders can take as a souvenir from the experience and then finders will leave something else in exchange for the next person. “I’m an outdoor fanatic!” said Mike, “And geocaching adds a purpose to the hike and a destination.” That was really helpful in inspiring his children to get involved, he said. Now, “they just love to get out and see Missouri scenery.” For more information on geocaching on Conservation areas, see the links listed below.
