Skoki, along with friends from Beaverlodge School, the Assiniboine Park Zoo and the Manitoba Geocaching Association are hosting an event at the Assiniboine Park Zoo on Saturday, June 8, 2013. Join us in the geocaching fun originally started at the zoo by our friends, Flotsom and Jetsom!

The event will begin with an introduction to the GPS and geocaching.

A limited number of GPS units will be available for those who don't have one and would like to find out more about this fun and addictive family friendly activity.

Several new caches will be unveiled and made available for finding throughout the Zoo area for this event.

Introduction to GPS and Geocaching: 12:00 noon at the Zoo Classroom
Geocache Challenge: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Potluck supper and prizes: 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Picnic Site #3 located between the soccer field and volleyball courts

Food is available at the Tundra Grill and snack shacks for purchase, and picnic tables are available throughout the zoo for those who prefer to bring their own lunch.

A sheltered area and picnic spot has been reserved for our group, and fire pits will be available for people to cook their own burgers and hot dogs. Please feel free to bring your favourite side dish to share (salads, desserts, munchies).
