(City) Pelican Rapids

You must notify the Pelican Rapids Parks and Recreation Department when you place a geocache in one of their parks.

The Pelican Rapids Parks Department welcomes responsible geocaching and has developed the following policy in the interest of all park users and geocachers.

1. When hiding, finding, and trading items in a geocache you are subject to all applicable federal, state, and local laws including park hours (6 a.m. to 10 p.m.).

2. Hiding or finding a geocache should never alter, damage, or otherwise negatively impact the parks, trails, or surrounding areas. Geocaching should never interfere with or detract from other park visitors' experiences. New geocaches should not be placed within 1/10th of a mile (528 feet) of existing geocaches.

3. A geocache hider must notify the City of Pelican Rapids Parks and Recreation Department with the geocache name, coordinates, URL of geocache listing, and valid contact information when a geocache is hidden. The hider is responsible for maintaining the quality of the geocache and it must be of value to other geocachers. The hider is also responsible for the upkeep of relevant information about the park and area the geocache is located in. The City of Pelican Rapids Parks Department will notify the hider if there are any seasonal restrictions or relevant policy changes concerning the park or geocache area.

If you have any questions about this policy, or if you hide a geocache in a Pelican Rapids park, please contact Julie Lammers with the City of Pelican Rapids Parks and Recreation Department at 218-863-7076 or by email at prasstclerk@loretel.net if you would like to learn more about geocaching, please visit the Minnesota Geocaching Association at http://mngca.org.
