Hunt for Hidden Treasures in the Capital Region River Valley
The goal of the River Valley Alliance is to create one of the largest river valley park systems in the world and create a legacy for generations to come. We are also passionate about connecting citizens to natural areas, and encouraging others to be active participants of the outdoors. Our vision balances protecting the natural capital of the river valley while ensuring that residents and visitors can have year-round access to natural areas.
Geocaching is an emerging trend that is growing globally, and is played by over 6 million people worldwide. With only four GeoTours in Canada and one in Alberta, our program is unique and innovative to Alberta Capital Region and allows residents to recognize and identify the treasure of the river valley park system. Our GeoTour program is unique in that includes more than 25 sites hidden throughout the Capital Region River Valley.
The goals of the Capital Region River Valley Alliance GeoTour are to:
- Connect people to nature through a fun and interactive recreational treasure hunt game
- Encourage people to walk and hike in scenic places along the North Saskatchewan River
- Promote physical activity in our community
