Join Naturalist Jess Lancial for a geocache hunt! After learning how to use a GPS, participants will search the woods for elves and the presents they have hidden in the park. The hunt will take place from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12 at McFarland Park (56461 180th St.) northeast of Ames.

Fee of $4 per collector (any child 3-14 years old) with registration is required by 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7. Registration is available at or by calling our office at 515-232-2516 (8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday). Space is limited to 20 groups, so be sure to register early to reserve your spot! We recommend that groups not exceed eight people as each group will share one GPS unit. Participants should dress warmly for the weather.
