Yes, the Virginia State Parks 75th Anniversary Geocaching Adventure has begun!
Last year's Geocaching Wildlife Adventure was wildly successful. Caches had a special collector's wildlife card inside that was unique to that park. This year as we celebrate our 75th anniversary the card's are about State Park history.
