Mark Twain National Forest to host 'Smokey Bear Flash Mob Geocache'

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

As part of National Get Outdoors Day Saturday, June 7, Mark Twain National Forest’s Poplar Bluff Ranger District is sponsoring a flash mob geocache treasure hunt event.

Geocaching uses GPS coordinates to find hidden items.

Called the Smokey Bear Flash Mob Geocache, the event starts at 12 p.m. June 7 in front of the Poplar Bluff Ranger District Office at 1420 Maud Street.

The flash portion refers to group pictures that are taken at the event. 

“Come and join us for a celebration of the 11th annual worldwide flash mob geocaching event,” said Mark Twain National Forest Landscape Architect Marge Van Praag. “Sign our log, get your picture taken and enter a drawing to win a flash mob geocache path tag commemorating the event.”
