What is letterboxing? Letterboxing is an adventure for many ages and abilities that combines exploration, solving puzzles and clues, and leaving an entry (stamp, drawing, signature) into a book for other to see your success. Letterboxing started in Dartmoor, England in the 1800's, and became famous in the US after a Smithsonian article about Dartmoor in 1998. Letterboxing is similar to geocaching, but without a GPS.

We are introducing some themed letterbox adventures at Battle Creek Cypress Swamp, focused on local animals, local and invasive plants, and the history of this area.

Free for members and non-members.

No registration required, though it is encouraged!
