Meridian Township Parks Geocache Seeking Guidelines

  1. Please do not disturb the surrounding environment in any way.
  2. Caches must be placed within 20 feet on either side of the existing trail.
  3. Respect the existing trails and do not create any new ones.

Meridian Township Parks Geocache Placement Guidelines

  1. To place a cache in any Meridian Township Park, a person must obtain a permit.  Permits can be obtained, at no cost, from the Harris Nature Center via the mail, fax or in person.


    Process for placing a cache:

    Step #1: Obtain permission from a Park Naturalist for location of cache.  Please allow 1-2 weeks for approval of your geocache application.
    Step #2: Affix MTPR permit sticker and place cache according to the permit guidelines as well as the Meridian Township Parks and Michigan Geocaching Organization Guidelines.
    Step #3: Register your cache at geocaching.com and have it approved.

     

  2. Containers must be transparent and clearly marked “GEOCACHE”.  Do not use ammo boxes, PVC pipes or other containers that might cause alarm.  In addition, all caches must have a Meridian Township Parks Permit Sticker affixed to the outside of the container.
  3. Offensive, illegal or dangerous items are not allowed in any cache.  Also, please do not put food of any kind into a cache.
  4. When placing a cache, do not disturb the surrounding environment in any way.  This includes digging holes, cutting vegetation and attaching the cache to live trees.  Respect the existing trails and do not create any new ones.
  5. Caches must be placed within 20 feet on either side of the existing trail.
  6. Place the cache in a safe area.  Think about the safety of people who will be looking for your cache.
  7. If a fee, purchase or solicitation (monetary or otherwise) is required to gain access to the cache or waypoint, the cache permit will be denied.
  8. Caches placed to promote commercial, political, religious or other social agendas are not permitted.
  9. After one year, the cache should either be removed or relocated at least 500 feet from the original location.  This should be done in coordination with a Meridian Township Park Naturalist.

  Please note: Meridian Township reserves the right to limit the number of caches allowed per park.
