Geocaching adventure, Easter egg hunt on horizon in Dexter
Monument Park in downtown Dexter will be the launch site of the village's first geocaching event on Sunday.
The village will host the launch of Dexter Parks’ geocache trail and educational event from 2-4 p.m. People can learn how to geocache, a fast-growing, high-tech outdoor treasure hunt for people of all ages.

The Michigan Geocaching Organization is expected to be at Monument Park to provide information.
"Following the opening of the trail, cachers will visit all of the village's parks to collect clues to the next cache location," Bishop wrote in a memo about the event.
Upon the completion of the geocache trail, cachers will go to the village offices to collect their "pathtag," a quarter-sized tag that signifies that a cacher has completed the trail. In addition, the village will host its second annual Easter Egg hunt April 7 in Community Park.
The Easter Eggstravaganza will take place from 10 a.m. until noon in the park at 3575 Ryan Dr.
At 10:30 a.m., there will be an Easter egg scramble, Bishop said.
The cost for the Easter egg event is $2 in advance and $3 at the door, and there will be face painting, live bunnies, and a visit from the Easter bunny.
