Geocaching program suggested for town
CLEAR SPRING — The Clear Spring Town Council heard a presentation Monday night about having a geocaching program in town.
Geocaching is a worldwide program in which people search for hidden treasures using a GPS device or a smartphone.
Dwight Wingert, a Mount Aetna resident who gave the presentation, said there are 3 million treasures hidden throughout the world.
Wingert said geocaching is very popular, and people who search for the treasures spend money in towns where it is offered.
“The interstate is right here,” Wingert said. “The people will come in here.”
