Going Coastal on Skidaway Island

This weekend, November 12-14, 2010, there is a Geocaching Event on Skidaway Island, Georgia.  It is sponsored by Georgia Geocachers Association (GGA) and Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites.

The event will start on Friday evening and run all day Saturday and culminating with brunch on Sunday Morning.  There is a $5.00 parking fee for the state park, but no other cost to attend.  They are offering for $20.00 a “bag of goodies” including a t-shirt, pathtag along with other event items.

GGA will also give back by designating a time on Saturday to clean up a section of the park.  They do this to show their appreciation to Georgia State Parks for allowing geocaching events and to also demonstrate that they are good stewards of the environment.

Skidaway Island is off the coast of Georgia, near Savannah.  It is a barrier island and borders Skidaway narrows, which is a portion of the Intracoastal Waterway.  There are picnic shelters as well as a large number of campsites for tents, trailers and RVs.  It has two trails totaling about 4 miles.  The island boasts marshes and old oaks draped in moss.

Georgia State Parks have embraced the Geocaching wave and has developed a great Geo-Cache program.  There are caches hidden in 42 Georgia state parks.  The park system offers prizes for the amount of caches that you find, starting at just 15. Their slogan is “Get Out, Get Dirty, Get Fit”.

Geocaching is a great time for the entire family.  Go get a GPS and Get Started.
