Each year GSA celebrates International EarthCache Day on the first Sunday
of Earth Science Week and the last day of World Space Week. In 2014 that day is Sunday 12 October, the day immediately after the 3rd International EarthCache Event!
To help us celebrate we ask people to visit an EarthCache, run an event cache
through Geocaching.com, or attend an event and tell others about how
much fun visiting and developing EarthCaches can be. If you run an event, please tell us about it in this short survey, so that we may help promote it on our website and Facebook. Please share photos of your event on our Facebook page, in the geocaching.com forums, or email it to us.
In 2014, for the first time ever, a special souvenir will be awarded by Geocaching.com to anyone who logs a “Found it” for an EarthCache on International EarthCache Day!
For future Earth Science Week dates and themes (and thus, future International EarthCache Day dates), please see AGI's Earth Science Week home-page.
World Space Week is the largest public space event on Earth, with over 1,000 events in 80 countries each year.
In 1999, the General Assembly of the United Nations declared the week of 4-10 October to be World Space Week.
Each year World Space Week celebrates the contributions of space science, engineering and technology to life on Earth and the betterment of the human condition, and each year we encourage EVERYONE to celebrate by creating or joining a World Space Week event.
EarthCache Day has been accepted as an official World Space Week event and the World Space Week Association would like to ask anyone who is celebrating EarthCache day to also register your event on the World Space Week Global calendar and help us to celebrate the connection between the Earth and Space.
