You are more than welcome to have a look around the internet home of the Iowa Geocachers Organization.  Many of the features of this web site (and of the IGO) are restricted to members only.  But membership is FREE and we'd love to count you among our many members.

We have been receiving lots of bogus registration attempts lately, so if you would like to register for an account here please use the link provided here to send an e-mail to registration@iowageocachers.org.

Important!  The body of your e-mail MUST contain a brief statement indicating what your interest in the IGO is AND the username you wish to register under.  Are you a geocacher?  An Iowan just getting started in geocaching or wondering just what this geo-thing is?  Please let us know.  Failure to include this information may invalidate your registration attempt.  Your registration will be tied to the e-mail address used to send this message.  Confirmation of registration could take up to a week so please be patient.  Thank you.

Our Mission: To support and promote geocaching in and around Iowa through the education of geocachers, public officials, and the general public; to encourage safe, legal, and ethical geocaching practices; and to encourage and support an open, helpful, and fun geocaching community.

Geocaching and the Bonuses that Come with It

Geocaching is such a great activity - there's nothing like it that I've found, which challenges one physically and mentally, and you still have a wonderful time doing it!  My folks started Geocaching several years ago, and I would go with them once in a great while, but I rarely left the car and I didn't watch where they went or what they were doing.

For Supporting Members

As supporting memberships have been on the rise for the last few months, and I have finally spent the time to figure this out, and with the help of BOD members:  The IGO Board of Directors is proud to announce the re- introduction of the PRIZE VAULT.  Each month a random drawing will be held and a supporting members name will be drawn.  They will receive an email, inviting them to visit the PRIZE VAULT and select a prize.  When I receive their email, telling me which item they would like I will make arrangements to have that item shipped.
