Summer is a time for connecting with nature and geocaching is the perfect activity to help you do so.
Geocaching is a real-world treasure hunting game where players use GPS-enabled devices (a smartphone will do) to hunt for hidden containers called geocaches. Check out this short and sweet video from geocaching.com to get the full description.
The Jim Henson Company has Dinosaur Train themed geocaches hidden across the U.S. by PBS stations, museums, zoos, aquariums, and individual families. Each geocache features a dinosaur from the Dinosaur Train Field Guide and contains educational facts about that dinosaur.
