Welcome... to the Saskatoon and Area Geocaching Association (SAGA) Website!
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to the support and promotion of geocaching in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and surrounding areas.
The purposes of SAGA are to:
Promote geocaching as an exciting, family-oriented activity while increasing awareness of the geocaching playground.
Provide opportunities for the geocaching community to enjoy geocaching in the area and meet and socialize with like-minded geocachers.
To encourage, publicize, and advance Geocaching.
Represent geocaching interests in public forum and to recreation land managers.
Actively promote the "Cache In Trash Out" (CITO) program
Featured Caches of the Month
Each month we feature a couple of member caches chosen from the many caches in the Saskatoon area.
For the month of SEPTEMBER, learn about Webcam and Virtual caches. Both these types are what is called Grandfathered Cache Types.
These are geocache types that are still available to find, but no longer available for creation on Geocaching.com. The reasons for why each of these types was retired varies.
Virtual Cache - A Virtual Cache is about discovering a location rather than a container.
Webcam Cache - These are geocaches that use existing web cameras that monitor various areas like parks or business complexes. The idea is to get yourself in front of the camera and save a screen capture from the website where the camera is displayed in order to log a find.
While these are no longer being published, they are fun to find while visiting out of town. We even have one of each type in Saskatoon.
