Get Up and Out! With BernCo Bernie This Sunday

Bring the family, go geocaching at UNM North Golf Course Urban Open Space

Bernalillo County – County mascot BernCo Bernie welcomes kids, families and Balloon Fiesta visitors to celebrate the first-ever Get Up and Out! outdoor recreation event this Sunday at the UNM North Golf Course Urban Open Space.

This special event features geocaching contests and technical sessions, as well as golf clinics, a climbing wall, music and more.

Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting game where participants look for hidden objects using GPS coordinates.

Admission and parking are free at this special event, scheduled from 1-4 p.m. at the UNM North Golf Course Urban Open Space, 2201 Tucker Road NE.

Sunday’s event also kicks off a special geocaching event, Burque Birding GeoFlight. This contest will feature geocaches at the UNM North Golf Course Urban Open Space as well as other caches at surrounding Open Space properties.

The Burque Birding GeoFlight caches each have a bird theme to celebrate Albuquerque’s Urban Conservation Treaty for Migratory Birds. Discover what makes Albuquerque a special place for birds, name the common birds, and have fun geocaching at some of the county’s most scenic Open Spaces. Limited, numbered bird coins are available for cachers who find nine out of 12 geocaches during this special geocaching event.
