EcoAction Letterboxing in PA

We're so excited! Saltsburg EcoAction finally got out to do their first letterboxing activity. It was a wonderful chance to have the group in the woods exploring the flora and fauna and we also enjoyed the whole "treasure hunt" feeling that it had. Sometimes, we forget how lucky we are to be living in such a beautiful area. Saltsburg is a canal town that straddles the Kiskimenitas River, just east of Pittsburgh. The river trails make it an ideal place for canoes, bikes and, of course, hikers like us. Enjoy the pic!

Christmas came early for us this year, as we just recieved word that we've recieved a grant from DonorsChoose for a GPS unit. This gives us the capability to geocache, in addition to letterboxing, so it really opens up our options for the next trip! If you're not familiar with letterboxing, check it out at: Letterboxing North America. For more information on geocaching, check out: The Official Global GPS Cache Hunt Site . Maybe we'll see you out there!

This sounds like an exciting activity for the students to complete. Please do post some current pictures when you have the time, and keep up the neat work with your students.
