Upcoming Events & Workshops

Geocaching


Geocaching is a modern-day treasure hunt! People hide geocaches everywhere—from just down the street to the most remote wilderness areas. Many are hidden in Missouri City parks. Each treasure hunt will take you to a fun, creative or beautiful place outdoors. Geocaches range from very small (like a film canister) to large (such as a metal lunch box). Many are camouflaged, but they are not buried. Geocaches hold things like a log book to sign your name, tradable items for kids and adults, and more. 

Learn more about geocaching by visiting the Texas Parks and Wildlife website.
