Looks simple, But I hope something like this never comes to Mass. I will quit placing caches if I have to deal with permits.
It already has come to Mass...check out this email I got a few months back
"Dear Geocache Owner;
I am writing from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) with respect to your Geocache that you may have at the DCR Middlesex Fells Reservation. The DCR supports and permits Geocaching in keeping with its mission to protect, promote and enhance the Commonwealth’s natural, cultural and recreational resources.
At the Middlesex Fells, we are currently finalizing a Resource Management Plan. The draft plan and maps are available at http://www.mass.gov/...mp-midfells.htm
We encourage you to read and comment on this plan.
Once the plan is finalized and approved, all Geocaches in the DCR reservation will need to be permitted and approved. In addition, any Geocaches within our Zone 1 areas (see draft map at
) will need to be removed."
