Description   EN   

The Lions Club partnered with a Girl Scout seeking her Gold Award, in the planting of a Wye Oak seedling at Unglesbee Memorial Park in Libertytown, Maryland. She also planted a garden of wild flowers surrounding the tree and built a fence around the garden. The park was named for Charles Unglesbee who was a member of the club from 1954 to 1968 and was president in 1965. The Wye Oak was the largest white oak tree in the United States and the State Tree of Maryland from1941 until its demise in 2002 and was estimated to be nearly 500 years old. It measured 31 feet, 10 inches, in circumference, stood 96 feet tall, and had an average crown spread of 119 feet.

The geocache is hidden nearby in the park.

2 11 August 2018 DudleyGrunt Didn't find it

Visited today with sfcchaz. Located the hide location, but cache is missing.

Thought it was cool that there were pamphlets at the parking lot for the caches, but wonder if someone unfamiliar with how geocaching works found it and took it. Well constructed housing for the cache that should prevent accidental finds.

Hope to get back and make the find in the near future if it is replaced.

I am in possession of an OCNA moving cache that I wanted to drop off, but then forgot to do so even when we were at the letterbox. Another reason to come back.

Happy Trails!

1 06 July 2018 Recommendation sfcchaz Found it

I had some free time this morning and noticed that there were a few GPSgames.org GeoVexilla Flags I could find that would score me a lot of points. 2 Martinique Flags that were attainable an hour up the road from where I live.

This is my 350th OCNA find. But I've been pretty abscent for the last year. I need to get back into OCNA.

I also noticed this cache and another OCNA Letterbox (seems to be missing) was in the park which I could find on the way home. This was a very nicely done cache and was very clean and dry. What was surprising is that there were 10 signatures on the logbook. Several of them I know, but they're not really OCNA cachers. I suppose that geocachers just take a look at things when they're nearby just in case. I was up here a couple months ago ( as were several hundred other cachers) for the MGS CAM 2018 Picninc, but didn't realize that this cache was here.

I took one of the Wye Oak chips and left a personal pathtag of mine. I'm giving this one a recommnedation vote. TFTC
