Warren’s Second Cache In Trash Out Event
Submitted by Amanda Altavilla
On Saturday, October 19, 2019, the second Warren Cache in Trash Out (CITO) event was held at Codington Nature Trail. CITO is an environmental initiative supported by the geocaching community. Geocaching is a real world, outdoor treasure hunting game in which you utilize a GPS-enabled device to find a geocache hidden at a specific location. Warren has geocaches hidden on different trails such as the Municipal Complex, Glenhurst, Dealaman, and East County Reserve. CITO Events have been happening twice per year since 2002.
Catherine Cooney, an avid geocacher in the area, organized the CITO event with the support of Warren Township Recreation. The event was again a success that included a group of about 40 volunteers including Geocachers, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and town residents who cleaned the trail by pruning overhead and trailside overgrowth, removing sticks and branches off the trail, picking up trash and repainting the trail blazes.
Volunteers received a CITO event T-shirt supplied by Warren Township. CorTex Products also donated Outdoor Skin Protection Kits that were given out to volunteers.
Warren Recreation would like to thank Catherine Cooney and all the volunteers for helping to clean up Codington Nature Trail. Next year two different CITO events will happen in the spring and fall in Warren.
