CSU Bakersfield Holds Geocaching Event

The Psychology Club at CSU Bakersfield will be holding a Geocaching event on Sunday, March 10th from 10am to 3pm at the CSUB Alumni Park. The event is open to the public. The cost is $5.00 per team, and teams are not limited in size. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Psychology Club.

Geocaching is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache container hidden at that location.  Caches usually contain a logbook or log sheet for participants to log their find. You never know what the cache owner or visitors to the cache may have left for you to enjoy. But, the rule is if you take something, you leave something of equal or greater value in return.

“We’re excited to hold this event. Geocaching is a trend that people everywhere seem to really enjoy. We think it’ll be a very successful day full of fun, and will help our student club raise funds to support the specific extracurricular educational activities of our club members,” said Psychology Club President, and CSUB Senior, Nick Smith.

The Psychology Club at CSU Bakersfield is a nonprofit organization, based on the CSUB campus. Though they are called the Psychology Club, all majors are welcome. Their goal is to help students build leadership and communication skills through community service and social events.
