The Manitoba Geocaching Association (MBGA) is hosting its 7th Annual GeoVenture Event!

Group Use Area #1, Site #6
Birds Hill Provincial Park

Coordinates: N 50° 01.375 W 096° 54.467

This event is open to everyone. Whether you've been caching for a long time, are relatively new at it, or are just thinking about trying it sometime, we are looking forward to meeting you! The main event will take place on Saturday, but feel free to drop by anytime. You can come for the day, or stay for the weekend.

The group use area includes a picnic shelter with running water, electricity and wood fired grills for our exclusive use. There are modern, heated washrooms nearby. Showers are available in the main campground area. The MBGA will collect $15 per night, per camping unit, to cover camping fees. If you plan on camping, please post as indicated below so we can keep track of attendance numbers to ensure we have enough space booked.

The group use site only accommodates tents, but camper trailers are welcome to set up in the parking area. There are no facilities for electrical or sewage hookup in the parking area. There are; however, electrical and full service sites nearby at the Birds Hill Park Provincial Campground that may be reserved by calling 1-888-482-2267 or online at Parks Reservation Service.

Please note that Park Vehicle Permits are back again this year: Annual permits are $40, 3-day permits are $12, or daily permits are $5. These can be purchased at all Conservation Offices including campground offices, large stores such as Wal-Mart and Canadian Tire, and smaller outlets around the province where hunting and fishing licenses are sold.

TO HELP US PLAN AHEAD, PLEASE POST WHETHER YOU WILL BE CAMPING AND THE NUMBER OF ADULTS/CHILDREN IN YOUR GROUP HERE.

Upon arrival, please check in at the GeoVenture 2011 Registration Area (the coordinates above) at the group camp site shelter Friday evening or Saturday morning.
