Geocaching in Myakka River State Park / Farm-to-School Program
Daja and Brandon are on a geocaching quest in Myakka River State Park in Sarasota! Plus, Chloe gets a first-hand look at the benefits of fresh, local produce when she visits a school that grows its own vegetables. She also gets to visit a corn and potato farm that participates in the “Farm to School” program.
Geocaching is an outdoor game using hand-held global positioning systems (GPS) devices. It’s effectively an inexpensive, interactive, high-tech treasure hunt that’s a great way to learn geography. Participants use location coordinates to find caches. Some caches are easy to find; others are more difficult. The biggest reward is the thrill of the search and the discovery of a place where you have never been. Geocaching should have minimal impact to the environment and conscientious land use ethics should be followed.
