JCLS Meet Geocaching

The Jackson County Library Services Centennial Geocoin Challenge has begun! This one of a kind Geocoin Challenge will be ongoing until all 100 coins, representing JCLS’ 100 years of service, are handed out.

What is Geocaching?

Geocaching is a real-world treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices such as a smartphone. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. See Geocaching 101 for all the information you need to get started!

  • Find all JCLS Geocaches and win a Geocoin!
  • Print the JCLS Geocache Passport.
  • Register for a free membership at geocaching.com.
  • See the complete list of all the challenge caches on geocaching.com or the Geocaching app for mobile devices.
  • Download the Geocaching mobile app (or log your finds on geocaching.com).
  • When you find the Geocache, sign the logbook and locate and stamp or record the special code in your passport, then return the Geocache to its original location.
  • The first 100 participants to complete the series will get a limited edition JCLS Geocoin. Coins can be claimed at the Medford library reference desk (upstairs), so we suggest finishing your hunt with the Medford cache. Coins are limited to one per Geocaching name.

Taking some pics while you're out hunting caches? Tag us on Twitter or Instagram, just don't spoil the cache locations!

The JCLS Centennial Geocoin Challenge was created in partnership with Southern Oregon Geocaching. For more geocaching events and information check out SOGeo on Facebook.
