If you are already a geocacher, you will find that there are caches at a number of our Local Geological Sites. If not, then why not try it? Log onto www.geocaching.com where you’ll find a short video explaining all about this absorbing activity.

At some sites there is a box to find, at others there are geological questions to answer; the latter are called Earthcaches. Click here for more Earthcache information. You need to sign up - and then get out with your GPS or smartphone with the appropriate app installed - and enjoy searching in the countryside.

You might like to start with the Earthcache at Brown Howe Quarry, close to the shore of Coniston Water where there’s an information board explaining the interesting geology there. See article in Earth Heritage magazine page 26.

Click here for a list of current Earthcache sites at/near Cumbrian LGS sites.

#MondayMotivation It’s been a while since we've done a #SpotTheAnimal challenge, so let's see if you all still have your species spotting skills! Which of our native reptile species is in this photo? Can you find it? https://t.co/raBZ5u1oPr CumbriaBDC photo
