Geocache Placement Guidelines
I have read and accept the placement guidelines.
A Geocache Placement Permit must be filed with and approved by Dubuque County Conservation (DCCB) before posting the cache on a geocaching web site. At a minimum, Cache Listing Requirements/Guidelines developed by Groundspeak and posted at geocaching.com must be followed when developing a cache. All local and state laws apply. The cache container must be clearly marked on the outside with Geocaching.com and the name of the cache. DCCB through its director or designee, reserves the right to terminate this approval for placement of a geocache on DCCB land for any reason at any time. Caches not in compliance with the terms of this permit will be removed from the property and this permit voided for failure to comply. We request that you monitor this cache every two months and you maintain it to be family friendly. This means the cache should contain no food, alcohol, firearms, drugs, dangerous items or adult items. We also request that you direct people seeking your cache to follow established trails most of the way to your cache. We discourage off trail hiking as it negatively impacts the environment. I have read and understand the terms of this permit and agree to comply accordingly. I will retain a copy of this permit for my records.
Cache is located in a sensitive archaeological, historical, or ecological area
Damage or disturbance of the ground will result from placement of this cache.
The cache is located in an area where a prescribed burn might take place.
The cache is not in an area that might cause potential danger to visitors, i.e. under water, in potential flood areas, on a steep slope, etc.
Dubuque County Conservation will fill out this section. If any item does not meet policy requirements it shall be grounds for denial of a permit.
