PITT-BRADFORD TO OFFER GEOCACHING COURSE

PITT-BRADFORD TO OFFER GEOCACHING COURSE

BRADFORD, Pa. — The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford will offer a GPS and Geocaching program this month as part of the university’s continuing education offerings.

The class will meet Saturday, Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Kinzua Bridge State Park Pavilion, four miles north of U.S. Route 6 in Mount Jewett on State Route 3011. The cost is $20 per participant. Youth participants, ages 7-18, must register with an adult.

Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity in which players use GPS and other handheld navigational devices in order to hide and find small containers called geocaches.

Students will learn to navigate using a GPS by participating in a gentle 1.5-mile geocaching treasure hunt on the Kinzua Bridge State Park trails. During this hunt, students will learn to use GPS menu screens, find geocaches and the proper etiquette surrounding the game.

Class will meet regardless of the weather. Students should remember to wear weather-appropriate clothing and comfortable walking shoes. Bottled water will be provided, but participants should pack a lunch for the day.

For additional information contact Continuing Education and Regional Development at Pitt-Bradford at (814)-362-5078, toll free at 800-872-1787, or by email at contined@pitt.edu.
