EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. – With the advent of GPS technology and ubiquitous cell phones, the old-fashioned scavenger hunt has transformed into the growing 21st-century game of geocaching, offering worldwide adventure for all ages.

Father-daughter team Steve and Jessica Godun of North Brunswick will share their extensive geocaching knowledge and experience in the next Option Green lecture, “Geocaching: A Modern-Day Treasure Hunt,” at the East Brunswick Public Library, 2 Jean Walling Civic Center, at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 8. The program is free and open to all ages.

According to the Goduns, more than 3 million geocaches are hidden around the world waiting to be found. They will introduce the game and its lingo, show how it’s played, discuss geocaching’s environmental policies and guidelines and also take attendees on a geocaching adventure inside the library.

Godun and his daughter, who is 10, geocache under the username “JessicasDaddy.” They are active practitioners of the game with hundreds of finds and about a dozen “hides” to their credit. They also are the creators and caretakers of the official 10-cache geotrail at the Plainsboro Preserve in Middlesex County.

The Option Green lecture series is offered by the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission in partnership with the East Brunswick Public Library.  The series recently won a 2017 Environmental Achievement Award from the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions.  All programs are free and open to the public.
