If you are into geocaching or want to learn more about it, a free class is now available. 

The Eddie V. Gray Wetlands Center is presenting a free Geocaching 101 class from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday at 1724 Market St, Baytown. 

Geocaching is like treasure hunting. By using an app on a smartphone, people can track down where a cache is hidden within their city. Inside the cache are trinkets, a logbook, and then participators log in what they found online. It has become popular among adventurers who enjoy the thrill of a treasure hunt.

The class will be followed by Houston Geocacher/herpetologist Mike Howlett on how to identify local snakes. Baytown geocacher Bert Marshall is the event host.

More information on geocaching is available by visiting http://ourbaytown.com/baytownbert/geocache.htm or www.geocaching.com.

Call 281-420-7128 to find out more about the free class.
