Hitting the Books Geotrail Field Trip
by Cola City Homeschoolers Geocache Club
Saturday, December 11th from 9am-4:30 pm
FREE — All Ages

Join the Cola City Homeschoolers Geocache Club for an in person meet-up on Saturday, December 11 for The “Hitting the Books” geotrail.
This Geotrail is a series of geocaches hidden throughout Spartanburg’s public libraries.  Many of the geocaches require the finders to solve a puzzle on site.  Anyone who proves that they have found at least 8 of the geocaches by collecting the stamps in each one earns a geocoin.
