There are many other flowering species in the Arboretum
area that bloom from March through fall, so don't limit yourself to May. The park is beautiful at any time of
year with its mix of woods, small ponds, and grassy areas in a moderately rolling terrain. The park also contains
a golf course, and has an extensive beach on Lake Ontario (but it is not open for swimming or boating).

Durand-Eastman Park has many hidden treasures and in hidding this cache we are trying to get you to find some of them. The coordinates above MIGHT be the cache, or it may really be at one of these other locations:
43 13.624 N 77 33.477 W
43 13.653 N 77 33.794 W
43 13.728 N 77 33.622 W
43 13.736 N 77 33.496 W

The Arboretum area of the park where the cache is hidden contains collections of many types of shrubs and trees, including some unique specimens from overseas. Some of the things you'll see if you hit all the spots are Dove Trees, Cork Trees, Chinese Fringe Trees, Magnolias, Tulip Poplars and Rhododenrons. The trees have tags on them, so you know what you're looking at.

The Dove Tree blooms in mid to late May and got its name from the large white flowers that make it looks like a flock of doves have settled in the tree.

The Chinese Fringe trees and Magnolias bloom in mid May also, and the air is heady with the fragrance of the various types of Magnolias.

The Cork trees don't flower, but they have very interesting bark, and it is used to make corkboards and other things.
The tag says Phellodendron Amurerse Pistillate.

Tulip Poplars are fairly common, but the flowers are showy and the trees are large and straight. The flowers are
out about the same time as all the other trees mentioned so far.

We've left copies of the park's Arboretum Guide in the cache, so you can do some more Durand Discovery on your own.
If there aren't any left when you find the cache, please mention it in your cache report so we can restock.

The cache is a green 50 mm ammo can a little ways off a
small trail inside a fallen log.

The photos are general views in the park (taken 4/18/2002), and not necessarily clues for finding the cache.

This was a fun one to find, especially since it has been almost another three years since it was last logged. Turned out that it wasn't the last time it was visited, though. A couple of muggles found it and signed in, and were kind enough to leave it as they found it.

This cache is in perfect shape! I tried a couple sets of the coordinates before finally stumbling onto it. I was psyched! Signed in and covered it up better than how I found it.

Thanks for the fun and for keeping this one active for all these years!

Last place I looked, and last place left to look, since I didn't seek them in the order presented in the description.

It's been more than 3 years since this hide was last found but it is in excellent shape... clean, dry, lots of room in the logbook. I left a pathtag, as it was all I had with me, and took some sort of trackable coin... at least I think it's trackable. TFTF.

We didn't really look at this listing till we got near the listed coordinates. Then noticed the gotcha! We ended up finding 4 of 5 parts, out of necessity. The final cache was in great shape in a nice hiding spot. Thanks for an interesting cache!

Came to the park to find Ghost's Domain and thought I'd give this one a try since I was in the area. Started my search after finding Pat Lake cache. Thought I could narrow down the the choices by out-thinking the clues, but ended up going to all but one! Never been to this part of the park before. I enjoyed the walks between waypoints. I'm wondering what was behind the set of man-made ponds -- maybe I can find out.

Took a break during the middle of this cache attempt to find nearby Chain Gang 1. Found it o.k., but it broke my concentration and I almost ended up revisiting one of the locations I had already checked! I was certain I'd have to come back to one of the locations to search further -- I was even beginning to doubt whether or not the cache was still there given how long it had been since it had been found. Luckily, I gathered my wits about me and went to the set of coordinates I had saved for last (not the set I guessed would be it, mind you). Lo and behold, there was the cache sitting exactly where it should be after being unfound for over a year.

Cache was in fine shape. TN. Left: snowman lego SL
Note: there are no Arboreum guides in the cache. You may wish to refill

Cached out a bunch of (old) trash around the cache area. Forgot to bring a garbage bag, so I was carrying it in both hands and almost stepped on a big garder snake on the way back to the trail (sorry, snake).

Second of three Navicache only caches I found in the park today. I'm getting kinda hooked on these kind of caches.

Well you did a great job on the layout of this cache. I visited 3 areas before reaching the end and logging in. I enjoyed my walk through the park and around a couple of the holes today. A few people were out but otherwise very quiet.
Left a whistle, took nothing.

Well, I did come out to get to know the park and get some exercise before the picnic...

I entered the coords randomly and found it on the last try. Of course I ended up walking completely around the pond to find it.

Traded WG$$ and explained geocaching to the sheriff's deputies I came across as I made my way out of the woods at 10pm. They had been patrolling for the other kinds of activity that happens here after dark. Happily, they said they haven't had any problems this year so I'll probably be back for more caches after work next week.

Thanks for the hike!

I did the five cords in no particular order. Just entered them into the GPS and wondered about. Of course , I found the cache on the last set of numbers entered, but not in the order they are shown on the web page, maybe .

A really neat cache hunt and a great way to view the park. I then went to hunt the Leprecon's Treasure cache. Spent about an hour....couldn't find it. Haaa. Then as I was entering the info on this cache I found that it is no longer there. I keep a bunch of printed out cache hunts in a folder so I can have them handy if I go someplace. I usually check to web to make sure they are still active. Except this ONE time. Oh well, got a grea tour of the park. Thanks for a great cache hunt.

Well, we made it back here, and found it. Tried with my 12 year old grandson a couple of weeks ago, but he was hungry and thirsty, so we didn't get past square one. Enjoyed all the trees and shrubs. (Why can't I grow rhodies like that in my yard?) Took the signal whsitle and left a pedometer. Swapped 3 G's. Good concept for a cache, and lots of fun looking. Found with RobN Hood.

We lucked out. The second spot we stopped at was the right one. The Dove Tree was our first. After looking around and not seeing a fallen log moved on to the next spot and it was there. Again had to wait for maintenance crews to clear the area at the bottom of the hill. Took nothing, left nothing.

What a pain! Issaquah Puppy and I went to do this cache today while it was pouring rain. I didn't visit the sites in order. The first one I visited was the cork tree. That was pretty cool. The second site I visited, I found no tagged trees, nor any rhodys. There didn't seem to be any displayed trees like the cork tree, or other trees I had seen. So I started looking for the cache. I spent almost half an hour looking for a logs that a 50 cal ammo box could fit in, but I couldn't find any that large that seemed to be close enough to the coords. I started looking under logs. and trees, and found nothing. I came to the conclusion that maybe this wasn't the place. I went to another site, and found an obviously displayed tree, but it wasn't tagged either. I went to the next place, and after slipping in the mud on a slope, I found the correct cache site. It was raining, so I made a brief log entry. Sorry about the mud on the log book.

As Caron & Quinn stated, we all got together & went after this one. First time meeting Caron & after a whole year of breaking Quinns chops, I finally went on a cache hunt with him. Had a really good time. Park is a great park, & the cache location was great as well. Left a hikers/campers emergency whistle & signed the log. Thanks for the adventure.

Very nice day to look for a new cache, and this one was nice on it's own. Teamed up with Caron and Gimpy on a late afternoon hunt to see if we could beat the others to this hunt. The coordinates were fun to figure out and the area was beautiful to be looking around in. Come later in the spring or early summer this entire location will be filled with plant life that would make for some nice camera shots.
Gimpy was first to locate cache from our team gathering.
I left a couple of Carabeners and signed the log book. Caron left a couple of "wheres George" bills for tracking purposes.
We found just a few beer bottles and a can not far from the cache so we all packed out what was there. Cache spot is nice and clean now.
Thanks for the fun and I am glad to see a new cache placer in our area.
I have included two pix with this log. One is of Gimpy and the other is of a near by tagged figure which is which.
