  • GEOCACHING: SMOKEY GEOCOINS

    Wildfire Prevention legend Smokey Bear invites you to be part of a worldwide treasure hunt.

    In celebration of Smokey's 70th birthday in 2014, Texas A&M Forest Service created a wildfire prevention campaign using geocoins.

    Seventy trackable geocoins have been registered at geocaching.com.

    The coins were originally placed in various Texas A&M Forest Service geocaches and other public geocaches across the state. Geocachers are able to locate, move and log these trackable coins.

    Since their release, Smokey geocoins have:

     

    • Visited all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia
    • Been found in 28 different countries
    • Toured 5 continents (only missing S. America and Antarctica)
    • Traveled over 485,000 miles (greater than the distance to the moon and back)
