Fun and Treasure in Mississippi River Sculpture Park

downloadHidden, within the boundaries of the Mississippi River Sculpture Park is a treasure. The treasure can only be found using a device called a GPS (Global Positioning Satellite Receiver).  The treasure has been found by 421 people.

The treasure is a geocache. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location.

The Description of the Mississippi River Sculpture park

Located on the magnificent and scenic Upper Mississippi River Byway, the Mississippi River Sculpture Park is a hallmark cultural destination of national and international appeal. More than two dozen life size bronze statues are planned for the Park. Four, Black Hawk, Dr. Beaumont and son Israel, Victorian Lady, and Julian Coryer Voyageur are already installed at the time this cache was placed, with more coming each year. As you visit and revisit you will be able to learn the stories and lives of the men and women who shaped the Upper Mississippi River Valley on the land now called Prairie du Chien.
Located in the City of Prairie du Chien adjacent to beautiful Villa Louis on St. Feriole Island (you can drive or walk on to the island) just above the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers in the spectacular Mississippi River Valley, the Sculpture Park is an unparalleled unique destination for year round travelers.
Occasionally, you will be able to catch events typically called “Arts in the Park” including pig roasts and music. Like the park itself, the events are free and open to the public. The Mississippi River Sculpture Park Fund welcomes donations in an effort to continue to find new & planned sculptures, but all are welcome to visit day or night.

This cache is placed with the approval (and encouragement) of the Mississippi River Sculpture Park Fund. You are looking for an instant coffee container taped up to not be so obvious. Be considerate of muggles, since this location can get very busy, and make sure you replace the cache to best keep it from sight. Otherwise, feel free to check out the park and enjoy.
