Pacific Historic Parks Geocaching Adventure Lab®

Pacific Historic Parks is digitally preserving the story of World War II through a modern, virtual platform using the Geocaching Adventure Lab® app. The Geocaching Adventure Lab® experience is a combination of traditional geocaching (usually an in-person experience of hunting for caches at an outdoor site) and learning about the site using virtual resources, where players have the ability to learn more by reading narratives and observing change over time by looking at historical pictures related to the site on a mobile device.
