The Great Washington Heritage Geo-Adventure!
Contest is over...but the adventure continues!
Commemorating the Washington State Historical Society's 125 years in 2016, this geocaching tour around the great state of Washington features 25 locations in 5 separate regions. Each location has a unique history that has benefited from the Washington State Historical Society's Heritage Capital Projects grant program. Cache information can be found online at www.geocaching.com.
ACCESS TO CACHE SITES: Each location has given the Washington State Historical Society permission to hide a geocache somewhere in the vicinity. No cache's discovery is dependent on hours of operation or season. All locations are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (though we recommend searching in the daylight hours). If for any reason cache seekers determine a site to be hazardous, unsafe or inaccessible, please do not attempt to enter the area. Instead, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 253-798-5902 and report the situation immediately.
PRIZES: The contest portion of the geo-adventure is over. However, while supplies last, if you send in proof (stamps or selfies) that you visited all five locations in a region we will mail you the custom Washington State Historical Society pathtag to match those regions. Again, once they're gone - they're gone, and we can't promise there will be tags available.
If you've bothered to travel all that way to find our caches, why not take a selfie while you're there? Show us how much you appreciate Washington's heritage by posting your pic on social media with the hashtag #iheartWAheritage. Don't forget to tag us too!
