Description   EN   

This cache has been placed in conjunction with the MAGC 5th Aniversary Celebration and has been placed with the blessing of MWR Annapolis.  At the trailhead, you will see signs that may seem conflicting.  Greenbury Point is open for public access and use from dawn to dusk.

Greenbury Point is a 231 acre peninsula on the Atlantic Coastal Plain. It borders the Chesapeake Bay to the east, the Severn River to the south, and Carr Creek to the west. It contains around 40 acres of wetlands which have remained freshwater because the property is bulkheaded . The remainder of the property is mostly grasslands and successional woody growth. It has a thin riparian buffer along half of the property.

Common wildlife species inhabiting the Point include white-tailed deer, red fox, bobwhite quail, osprey, raccoons, woodchucks, blue birds, and great blue herons. Uncommon grassland birds are sometimes spotted including the eastern meadowlark, Lincoln sparrow, and yellow breasted chat.


The cache is a camo'd matchstick case, just a bit off the main trail.  The cache contains only a log, but could fit very small swag items.  It is secured in place with natural materials.  Please replace just as found.

In order to claim this cache, you must simply sign the physical log book.  Of course, I'd also love to see your thoughts and / or  pictures of your visit, as well.

Please be sure to carefully obey the posted speed limits and other posted regulations, while on USNA property.

group FTF with the group from the MAGC event. I know all the kids were having a great time finding the caches before the big kids could find them, and the dogs enjoyed the hike around the park. Thanks for the new caches!

Smile FTF Smile 12:29 PM. Sharing this FTF with a very large group (too large to try to remember) from the MAGC 5th Anniversary Celebration event. Several of these cachers weren't aware of OCUS and hopefully they'll join and start placing caches as well. Wink

This is such a nice area and with all of the new caches to boot. Can't get much better than that. TFTC
