Once you get to the coords you will have to do several things to locate the cache.

* The first thing you will do is to drive along the road until you come to the sign for Loblolly Pine Plantation. Once here pull over to keep roadway open.

This area was planted many many years ago to help in the preservation of this wetlands habitat. Loblolly pines are a tree that is found in many forests that border marsh areas. It helps create a much less biodiverse area than forests of mixed trees. This area also greatly benifits the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem.

The dense layers of needles protects the soil by slowing rainfall, releasing water slowly to reduce erosion. The roots & fallen needles form a sponge-like layer that obsorbs runoff, conditions the soil, & supports plants & wildlife. The trees help clean the air by trapping pollutants & transforming the nutrients in runoff before they enter & harm the Bay.

* Next you will need to take a coords reading at this sign.

* Now you will ADD .032 to the north coords & SUBTRACT .018 from the west cords.

Once you have done this you can go for the cache.

You are looking for a medium size lock & lock.

***GPS may bounce some***
This area is very close to the water & home to a varity of wildlife. Some may be our nice little slither friends so PLEASE PLEASE be careful. The brush, branches & bush are left here for nesting areas for the wildlife so be mindful of that. DO NOT reach in somewhere blind as it may have an occupant.

If you take a few minutes to stand quietly you will be treated to the sounds of numerous species of birds. There have been over 2oo different birds identified out here. Frequeant visitors to this area are the Red-bellied woodpecker, the Northern Flicker & even the Bald Eagle sit high in the trees.

If you are here early you may catch sight of some of the deer, foxes & even some of the water rodents coming & going between the habitats.

Tread gently as the ecosystem is very sensitive but do ENJOY!

Just found this site. Found this cache before attending the CITO at the Chesapeake Bay Environmental Center. Origianlly logged on Geocaching.com.

I found this one on the way out of the park after attending the CITO with the Mother Wolf, trainbug and Falcon Loader. The hint definately helped out as this was in a little deep for MW, also the the geo-bounce wasn't helping either.
