Outer Drive has been a series of hundreds of Park & Grabs over the last few years. Many cachers have found a convenient Cache A Day or an easy way to complete a record number of caches in a single day.

This CITO is along a short stretch of Outer Drive near the Prairie Pathway. As a caching community we can Celebrate Earth Day by clearing & recyling the trash left by careless hikers & drivers.

In the August issue of Science Magazine 2005 an article - Is Trash Immortal ? listed the following statistics:

How Long Does It Take For Commonly Used Products To Biodegrade?

Plastic Soda & Water Bottles  -  Forever
Glass Bottles  -  1 Million Years
Batteries  -  100 Years

Aluminum & Tin Cans  -  50 to 100 Years
Plastic Bags  -  10 to 20 Years

Milk Cartons  -  5 Years 

Paper  -  2 to 5 Months 

By collecting these materials that can be recycled & collecting trash we can honor Planet Earth.

Parking is available along the shoulder of Outer Drive

We can improve this natural area & if you haven't already found the Outer Drive Caches nearby - here's an opportunity !

Monday, April 22, 2019, 6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
