GEOCACHING and TREE-O-CACHING at MHP

McCully Heritage Project coordinates are: Longitude: 39.282473 Latitude: -90.621675

TREE-O-CACHING

The McCully Heritage Project has created an innovative program to educate visitors about the trees of Illinois while using GPS.  Playing on the popular hobby of geo-caching, this program creates caches that are placed at particular trees.  Use your GPS unit to navigate to the tree-o-cache.  When you find the cache, sign the log-book and take your prize. 

To date, two caches have been placed. Click the images below for more information about a particular tree species. Use the coordinates below to start your Tree-o-caching adventure!
