Our free membership gives you many benefits. MiGO is one of the oldest
and most respected Geocaching organizations in the country. Since our
inception in April, 2002 we have grown both in size and stature. In
2007 we were granted an organizational land use permit by the Michigan
DNR. This permit is paid annually by MiGO and enables all our members
to place caches on permitted DNR lands at no fee. This is just one of
the many benefits of your free membership. You'll also become part of a
local and tight-knit Geocaching community with an active interest in
caching in our state. Our forums are very active and are a great place
to meet cachers and learn.
With the spring and summer event season upon us here in Michigan, the MiGO Board of Directors is proud to announce a challenge/contest for all geocachers.
In keeping with our mission statement of promoting the sport of
geocaching, the appreciation of the outdoors and good environmental
stewardship, we’re challenging you to participate in at least one “Cache
In Trash Out” (CITO) event this year and “Continue the Mission”.
Follow the link MiGO CITO Contest to find out more information on a contest where you could win a pathtag for attending a CITO event here in Michigan.
Note: You must be a registered MiGO member to participate.
