I have been thinking of Little Cat, and I had emailed the CA asking about
it.  However, I never heard a response.  I would think they'd be OK with it,
as one of their newsletters said that a geocaching seminar was hosted in one
of the other Cat Authority conservation areas.

But there's another question.  Under the most recent cache placement
guidelines, the section under "Commercial Caches" says:

Commercial caches attempt to use the Geocaching.com web site cache reporting
tool directly or indirectly (intentionally or non-intentionally) to solicit
customers through a Geocaching.com listing. These are NOT permitted.
Examples include for-profit locations that require an entrance fee, or
locations that sell products or services.

Given that Little Cat does charge an entrance fee, is that now off limits?

Ok, my bad, but Cataraqui Cemetary is a wonderful place to take a stroll

see a bit of history.

I suppose you could reference a website to answer questions about the
cemetary and then place the cache in a park not too far away.

I do notice that Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area has no caches, I
have no problem dealing with the CA in Brockville, just keep the cache
within one or two steps of the trail.
