[DNR] Geocache Adventure at Dunes State Park, Jan. 19
Start Date: 1/7/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/7/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Indiana Dunes State Park will host a special Geocache Adventure on Jan. 19.
 
The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Using GPS units, participants will travel the park and nearby duneland area while performing outdoor challenges.
 
A special aspect of this year’s event includes the “Spot of Soup Run.” Participants will be challenged to complete a special passport that requires sampling signature soups from well known local restaurants. Try the soups, collect the stamps and race back to the park’s nature center by 4 p.m.

The day will end with a chili dump in which participants are invited to bring chili to dump into a kettle that will be cooked over a fire at the nature center. Awards and door prizes will be given out during dinner.

Participants can register and learn more about the event by going to geocaching.com and searching ZIP code 46304 to find the event listing.

“You only need a GPS unit and a sense of adventure,” said Brad Bumgardner, park interpreter. “It’s a great opportunity to play in the winter weather while getting a sample of the best warm ups in the duneland area.”

The program, including the soup sampling, is free after paying the park entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle or $10 per out-of-state vehicle.

For more information, call (219) 926-1390.

Indiana Dunes State Park is at 1600 North 25 E. Chesterton, 46304.
