The purpose of the MnGCA is to provide a resource for Minnesota geocachers to organize activities and events that will improve the credibility of the sport, protect our natural resources and strengthen the community of geocachers in the state of Minnesota. Our responsibilities include holding educational, social and informational activities to increase awareness of our sport; to sponsor reports, meetings, and workshops for MnGCA members and the public on a wide area of topics, primarily about responsible land use and geocaching; and to work with local, county, and state governments to promote geocaching as a family-oriented outdoor activity.
The April 2015 Cache of the Month is High Rent District
nominated by shingobee23
With over 22,000 caches across 39 different countries, this month’s featured cacher is the team of Patrick and Barb known as “Two of Hearts.” You’ve probably come across them at many of the events, and you can find their home on the geocaching.com map by the two big geoart hearts in Bloomington. We caught up with these extremely busy cachers to find out a little bit more about them.
