Goodan Ranch/Sycamore Canyon Preserve


Never heard of Geocaching?  Well now is the time to learn.  Geocaching is a sort of treasure hunt, where users use a handheld GPS device to find a hidden container, usually containing a log book and small trinkets.  This phenomenon has grown to a world-wide level now available in every corner of the planet.  This program is aimed at guests who have never played the sport and would like to learn about it.  A slideshow and discussion in the visitor center will be followed by geocaching out in the park.  It is recommended that guests bring their own gps units as the number available from staff are very limited but one can still enjoy it without one.  Two new geocaches will be placed out for this event!  Space is limited to 30 so please call (858)513-4737 for reservations.  Guests will park at Goodan Staging area and must walk approximately 1 mile down to visitor centerRain or muddy conditions cancel. Program will meet at Visitor Center.
