Geocaching on EEL Sanctuaries
Geocaching is a real-world treasure hunt happening right now, all around you. Geocaches can be found on many EEL sanctuaries. To learn more, visit www.geocaching.com. For permission to hide a geocache on an EEL sanctuary, read on.
The Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands (EEL) Program is supportive of geocaching as a way to encourage visitors to explore the sanctuaries. We have a few guidelines to help protect the native vegetation and animals and to preserve visitor experiences.
Most geocache placements that follow Geocaching.com rules and are within a few feet of a marked trail will be approved. Micro-caches or heavily camouflaged geocaches that may cause seekers to damage vegetation are generally discouraged, but there are locations that might be appropriate.
If you would like to place a geocache and have questions, email the EEL Public Use Coordinator, Brad Manley – firstname.lastname@example.org . If you would to submit a geocache location for approval, include the following information:
- Coordinates, including stages of a multi-cache
- Type of container
- Geocacher username
- Name and contact information
Please keep in mind that geocache locations on EEL sanctuaries locations may be subject to land management activities such as prescribed fire, vegetation reduction, mowing, etc.
