Upcoming Programs

Geocaching 101 on the American Tobacco Trail
Saturday, July 6 
10 - 11:30 a.m.
Free for ages 6 and up
Geocaching is a treasure hunt where participants use coordinates to track down hidden "caches". We will learn how to use traditional GPS units and the Geocaching App by Groundspeak, then hike to find real geocaches hidden along the Trail. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle as we will be walking about a mile. Register early as class size is limited.
Meet at the picnic tables at the White Oak parking area (1305 White Oak Church Rd., Apex).

Our staff also offers public programs at Harris Lake County Park.
Check out the Harris Lake programs page for details.
