Bohrer Park at Summit Hall Farm Holds Geocache Treasure

On Jan. 5 the Maryland Municipal League (MML) will kick off the New Year with a Discovering Maryland Geotrail Launch in Greenbelt, Hancock and Perryville, Maryland. Forty nine towns including the city of Gaithersburg participate in the Maryland Geotrail, which was created in 2009 to encourage exploration of the unique cities and towns throughout the state.

Using GPS units, participants, or “geocachers,” plot map coordinates to locate the treasure or “cache” in each city or town. With the new launch in 2013, MML will reward the first 200 people who find and record at least 20 geocaches with a commemorative trackable geocoin. To be eligible, participants must record the location, date and code of the find in the Official MML Geotrail Passport and post a picture at each cache. Completed Passports must then be mailed to Maryland Municipal League offices. 

The “First Find” prize at the geocache at Bohrer Park is two one-day passes to the Fitness Zone in the Activity Center at Bohrer Park.  After the First Find prize is claimed, additional prizes such as Water Park passes may be added to the Bohrer Park cache.
