We’re celebrating International Earth Science Week by hosting IrvingtonCache (a geocaching event), October 13 from 3 – 6pm around our Irvington neighborhood. We’ll discover new facts about Indiana Geology and Environmental science!
Stop by Mundell & Associates to get your map and for questions, or go directly to the first coordinate at:

What is Geocaching?
Geocaching is like a treasure hunt in which you use advanced mapping skills and Global Positioning Systems’ support to locate the positions of special ‘targets’. Geologists use this technology in their daily work to develop maps for engineering and environmental projects as well as to display geologic and environmental data.
How do I get the locations (coordinates)?
We’ll provide the first location (coordinates) here on the website (see above), beginning at 3 pm (and at our south building entrance). When the first target is found, it will provide some very interesting facts about Indiana Geology and Environmental science, and will also have the coordinates for the next target. Find all 5 targets (which should take about 1 hour by foot), and then you will be given the final coordinates of the “Geologic Treasure Trove” to collect your prizes! Special prizes will be awarded to any earth and environmental science teachers who send their students.
