Option Green: Geocaching - A Modern-Day Treasure Hunt, November 8

Geocaching - A Modern-Day Treasure Hunt

An Option Green program

Wednesday, November 8, 7pm at The EB Public Library

ABOUT THE TALK
This presentation will introduce people to the activity known as "geocaching," a modern day treasure hunt with over three million geocaches hidden across the world. We'll show you how the game is played, understand the challenges involved, learn a little geocaching lingo, and hear about the geocaching community's well-established environmental policies and activities. Attendees are encouraged to bring their children along for the presentation, as geocaching is a family-friendly affair that provides a great way for parents to bond with their children in the great outdoors.   

Steve and Jessica Godun are a father-daughter team who have been geocaching under the username "JessicasDaddy". Steve owns and operates a computer and mobile device repair shop in Union, while Jessica attends fifth grade at Arthur M. Judd Elementary School in North Brunswick. They are active geocachers with hundreds of finds and about a dozen hides to their credit. They are also the creators and caretakers of the official ten-cache geotrail at Plainsboro Preserve in Cranbury, NJ.

Option Green, Wednesday, October 18: Birding in East Brunswick

Steven Albert has been an avid birder for over 50 years, ever since a downy woodpecker in his apartment courtyard caught his eye. An East Brunswick resident for 30 years, he frequently birds around town and in his backyard.

He will bring his knowledge of East Brunswick’s bird population to the East Brunswick Library at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 18 for a program on “Birding in East Brunswick.”

Albert’s talk is part of the Option Green lecture series coordinated by the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission in partnership with the library. All programs are free and open to the public.
