Lil' Clawd's Geocache Adventure!travel bug

To help celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, the museum has created a geocache opportunity for participants to travel a miniature ground sloth model named "Lil' Clawd" to as many national parks throughout the country as possible by August 25, 2017.

Using GPS location devices, members of the Geocaching.com community (free registration) can find the geocache that Lil' Clawd is located, log the entry on the Geocaching.com website, then travel it to a new geocache location within or around another national park for others to find. Below is a list of the national parks participants can take Lil' Clawd.  Where would you like to take Lil' Clawd?

What is geocaching?

Geocaching is an outdoor experience where people use GPS coordinates to locate specific caches and can exchange something inside the cache for something they have. Geocaches have pages on the geocaching website where geocachers can log the caches they find and where they find them.  The website can also tell them, if anything in the cache needs to move to another box.  This is how we will let people know where Lil' Clawd should go next.
