The BCGA is pleased to announce a new initiative in partnership with BC Parks and Project Blue Sky. Set for launch in mid/late August, this provincially funded project will see a series of new caches placed across BC. The initiative is all about carbon reduction, as promoted by Project Blue Sky... Here is a little about Project Blue Sky:
Canada’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes have teamed up with the Masters of Digital Media (MDM) students to launch Project Blue Sky. One of the key features of Project Blue Sky is their on-line carbon reduction calculator, where you can log your non-carbon producing activities and challenge your friends to do the same. Hike, bike, bus, or walk to your next geocache and log your activities on-line where your carbon reducing activities will be tallied with other participants in an effort to raise awareness and take steps to fight climate change.
Stay tuned... when we get a launch date set, we'll let you know and keep you in the loop with more information. In the meantime, check out (and log your carbon reduced behaviour) at ProjectBlueSky.ca
