The nice people of the Westmoreland Conservancy,a non-profit local land trust in Murrysville,PA,contacted us about an event they’re going to hold on May 22,2010. So we sent them a few books to raffle off. Here’s the event info,if you’re near western PA in mid-May:

The Westmoreland Conservancy,a non-profit local land trust in Murrysville,PA is co-hosting a family-oriented geocache event on Saturday,May 22,2010. The geocaching id is GC24H90 and information may be found on:geocaching.com,on the Conservancy’s website and on Facebook .

This all-day,family-friendly event is designed to introduce newbies to the sport of geocaching as well as to provide seasoned cachers with an entertaining day. To this end,we have planned a day of fun including:

  • 9 temporary geocaches,
  • 9 temporary geocaches just for kids,
  • a geocaching competition,

  • naturalist led hikes,
  • geocaching-related crafts,
  • and speakers who will address a variety of topics ranging from an introduction to geocaching to tips and hints for solving puzzle caches to more nature related talks such as taking effective nature photos and motion-activated wildlife photography.

A special interactive talk session is planned just for kids!

The Westmoreland Conservancy actively seeks to preserve green spaces for the enjoyment of the public,as well as protecting and preserving habitat for wildlife.

Additionally,we would like to encourage geocachers to visit and revisit our reserves,both in pursuit of a smiley and to enjoy the beauty of our natural spaces. Furthermore,this event is designed to provide an opportunity for the community to become familiar with some of the 265+ acres being preserved in Murrysville by the Westmoreland Conservancy.
