About Us

Geocachers of the Bay Area (GBA) is an organization serving the needs of geocachers throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We feel this is one of the most dynamic and exciting places in the country to be a cacher!

Our goals:

  • Educate the public on the game of Geocaching
  • Provide tools and services to our membership
  • Enhance our sense of community through forums and events
  • Facilitate a dialog with our local parks and open space districts

To accomplish this we have established this website. It is built and maintained by members of our community. If you wish to contribute, please visit the forums or email the site administrator at .
