WARREN, NJ - The second Warren Cache in Trash Out (CITO) event was held at Codington Nature Trail on Saturday, Oct. 19.
CITO is an environmental initiative supported by the geocaching community and have been happening twice per year since 2002.
Geocaching is a real world, outdoor treasure hunting game in which you utilize a GPS-enables device to find a geocache hidden at a specific location. Warren has geocaches hidden on different trails such as the Municipal Complex, Glenhurst, Dealaman, and East County Reserve.
Catherine Cooney, an avid geocacher in the area, organized the CITO event with the support of Warren Township Recreation. The event was again a success that included a group of about 40 volunteers including Geocachers, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and town residents who cleaned the trail by pruning overhead and trailside overgrowth, removing sticks and branches off the trail, picked up trash and re-painted the trail blazes.
Volunteers received a CITO event T-shirt supplied by Warren Township and Outdoor Skin Protection Kits donated by CorTex Products.
Warren Recreation, "thanks Catherine Cooney and all the volunteers for helping to clean up Codington Nature Trail."
Look for CITO events next year in the spring and fall in Warren.
