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 !
