Discover EarthCaching and 11 Stunning Locations

first_imgEarthCache GC14W63There’s something truly spectacular about our planet earth. This month, the 7 Souvenirs of August (and the Nature Lover Souvenir) encourages you to get in touch with the extraordinary world around you through EarthCaching.EarthCaching is the magical combination of geocaching and geological discovery. The purpose of an EarthCache is to share information about a particular (and typically jaw-dropping) geological feature. EarthCaches do not contain physical containers like most geocaches. They do, however,  carry a piece of geological history that can date back millions and millions of years.A little bit about this  geocache type…There are over 17,000 EarthCaches  worldwide.EarthCaches are the most popular geocache type. They are found more often and receive more favorite points than the average geocache.EarthCaching is currently celebrating its 10th Anniversary. The first EarthCache was published in Australia on January 10th, 2004.In partnership with Geocaching HQ, The Geological Society of America facilitates the listing of EarthCache locations around the world and offers a ‘Masters Program’ where you can receive a title (and pin) based on your level of EarthCache  expertise.Now go out into the world and learn something new…Using “Advanced Search” on geocaching.com, you can customize your geocache search. Under the “Search for” option, select “EarthCache”.  Type in your postal code or home coordinates and voilà, nearby EarthCaches!Bring a camera (most EarthCaches encourage selfies).Be prepared to investigate. You will have to search out the answers for the educational portion of the geocache.For inspiration, here are 11 stunning EarthCaches around the world:1. GC111XM in Pumakkale, TurkeyGC111XM2. GC20010 at Lake Baikal, RussiaGC20010 SharePrint Related10th Anniversary of the EarthCacheDecember 30, 2013In “Geocaching Weekly Newsletter”11 stunning EarthCaches and how to find themJune 17, 2015In “Geocaching Info”Your Path to Platinum EarthCachingFebruary 11, 2015In “Community” 3.

Yugindro said some members of the university community had kidnapped him and Registrar in-charge M. Shyamkesho when they visited the campus on Thursday.Suspended Vice-Chancellor Adya Prasad Pandey had appointed the duo when the Ministry of Human Resource Development had sent him on leave after a committee was constituted to probe various allegations against him.“We were harassed and grilled for three hours inside a room. They let us go after forcing us to sign on a piece of paper saying we will never try to enter the university office again,” Mr. Yugindro’s said in the complaint.Some students and faculty members of the university attacked them using sticks and stones with the apparent attempt to kill them but they somehow managed to escape, it added.Later, Mr. Yugindro issued a statement saying the six arrested teachers have been placed under suspension for being in police custody.Trouble in varsity Trouble in Manipur University began in the first week of July with the students’ union demanding Mr. Pandey’s ouster for alleged misappropriation of funds.
