25th Anniversary Geocache Challenge

As part of the Janice Mason Art Museum’s 25th anniversary celebration, the museum board decided to hold a Geocache Challenge.  We are proud to be part of the history of Cadiz and wanted to highlight other historical places and events within the Cadiz city limits.  There are 7 JMAM geocaches placed throughout the City of Cadiz. If you locate each geocache, and collect a numbered aluminum tree tag from each cache, you can turn them in at the Janice Mason Art Museum and receive one of 200 (??) Commemorative Coins created for this event.  The challenge began September 18, 2023.
