Geocaches on GGC Campsites
IMPORTANT: There are geocaches that have already been placed on GGC campsites that only GGC Members have access to. Caches that are set on GGC campsites CANNOT be published on geocaching.com to be found by the general public as they have been placed on PRIVATE property. You as a Guiding Member can go find them, but the general public cannot.
The coordinates for these caches are already programmed into the south set of provincial GPS units. If you would like the coordinates for these geocaches, please contact Karla through the Calgary Program Committee, email@example.com with a subject line "attn: geocaching coordinator"
If you would like to place a geocache on a GGC campsite please contact Karla through the Calgary Program Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line "attn: geocaching coordinator"and we can go over the Calgary Area policy.
YELLOW FISH ROAD SERVICE PROJECT
Storm Drain Marking Program
"Spawning Community Interest in the Protection of Rivers & Watersheds"
Help protect our local waterways! This is a challenge to the Guiding community to participate in marking storm drains and handing out information which encourages members of local neighborhoods to safeguard the water supply by keeping pollutants out of the storm drain system. Many people are surprised to learn that water entering the curbside storm drains flows directly into the local rivers untreated.
- For more info and to book storm drain marking kits
