+clearpath Posted February 1, 2006 Share Posted February 1, 2006 This topic has been kicked around before in various forms. However, it occurred to me that geocachers may have more to say about their love of nature and the environment. Without getting too political (I know thats a lot to ask) describe how geocaching has influenced environmentalism. Are we the new stewards of the scared and holy environmental trust supporting programs like CITO and Earth Day? Or, are we simply a group of like minded individuals that enjoy playing a game that largely exists in the great outdoors? Some of our actions have been critized by the environmental lobby as being destructive and wanton. Are we simply a more moderate form of environmentalism? It appears that many geocachers have a very real love of nature, being outdoors and experiencing activities that involve 'long walks in the woods'. Some of us have already found our way into the court system to defend the game and our right to enjoy nature as we see fit. Are we part of a "New Environmentalist" movement? Quote Link to comment
