Cowichan caches in big this summer with a massive geocaching event happening across the region.

The one-day valley-wide treasure hunt also includes tubing, hiking and biking events, a walking tour of Chemainus, and more.

The Island Spirit Mega Geocache event happens July 7.

"On the day of the event, we'll have lots to do," an Island Spirit press release says. "Entertainment, games, geocaching vendors, local artisans, food, educational and information sessions, as well as the Chris Yuill Magic Show."

In addition to the geocaching events, there'll also be three legacy trails of geocaches that feature the history, culture, plants, animals and wineries of the Cowichan Valley.

But the main event is the geocaching, with five levels offered and caches planted valley-wide.

The Island Spirit event is part of the WestCan legacy series of "mega events" that support rural economic development in Western Canada. The first WestCan event was held in 2011 in Three Hills, Alberta.

The Cowichan shindig is being run parallel with the Duncan Centennial program.
