Public Lands Geocache Pursuit
It's time to get outdoors! Healthy, active outdoor fun is waiting for you on Alaska's public lands. All you need is a sense of adventure and a plan.
Geoaching is a great way to get the whole family outside and exploring! The Alaska Public Lands Information Center and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service invite you to celebrate this day with an adventure in geocaching. We have placed caches on eight public land units and have a free booklet available to help you find them. The caches will remain outside for the rest of the summer, and all are encouraged to participate in finding them.
Never been geocaching or want to brush up on your skills? Join us for the Get Outdoors Day Public Lands Geocache Pursuit on Saturday, May 30th from noon-4pm at the Morris Thompson Cultural & Visitors Center. Learn how to use a GPS, find a geocache, and sharpen your skills as a geocacher!
Saturday, June 27th, 11am-4pm, Chena Lake Recreation Area
Few insects capture peoples' imagination more than dragonflies. Join us for a fun day of celebrating our colorful invertebrate flyers. Local entomologists, scientists, agencies, and businesses will gather to educate the public about dragonflies and their kin, and train visitors on how to properly collect and identify these amazing insects. This free, family-friendly event is held outdoors and there are a lot of fun activities for all ages!
