EarthCache event coming to Duncan next year
Duncan has been chosen by the Geological Society of America as the site for its third International EarthCache Event on Oct. 11, 2014.
The event will be held at the Cowichan Exhibition Grounds. It will be open to the public and geared toward geocachers.
The GSA has partnered with Landsharkz, a local geocaching company, to present the event that will attract an anticipated 1,000 people to the valley.
An EarthCache is a specific type of geocache that educates about earth science and how it relates to an area of geological interest at the chosen location.
Speakers specializing in paleontology and geology will be on hand, giving attendees the opportunity to view fossils and other displays from the island and receive more information about what constitutes an EarthCache and how to place one.
