Who We Are
The Geocaching Association of Great Britain (GAGB). The Association was established in 2003 to provide a national geocaching organisation and serve as a UK point of contact for geocachers, landowners, the media and others with an interest in geocaching.
What We Do
Maintain a database containing details of landowner consents and/or restrictions on the placement of caches, in respect of many parts of the UK; provide a GAGB members' forum; maintain codes of conduct and geocaching guidance; liaise with landowners as necessary; offer support to geocachers generally and provide a national organisation for enquiries about geocaching from the public, the media and others.
The GAGB also produces a bi-monthly full-colour e-magazine, 'Seeker', containing UK caching news, reviews and articles.
Seeker Issue 19
In this issue: Geocacher 'Ladybug Kids' gives us an insight into Geocaching in Alaska, how to stay safe whilst out geocaching, learn how to convert decimal coordinates to degrees and decimal minutes, an interview with 'ganja1447' on his fantastic stats website Project-GC, a product review on 'Maxpedition Jumbo Versipack', an interview with 'Lizzardman', some tips on how to get started with GSAK, and much more!
The GAGB website hosts a database of landowner agreements for geocache placements in the UK.
If you have found a geocache on your land when permission has not been agreed, then please visit our Landowner Contact Page so that we can assist you.
For more information on what a geocache is, please see our What is Geocaching? page.
Also, if you are a landowner who wishes to receive advice on encouraging visitors to your land through the medium of geocaching, then please contact us and we will endeavour to help.
