New England Franco-Route GeoTour Preview

The Museum of Work & Culture will be hosting a preview of its New England Franco-Route GeoTour, created in association with the Québec Délégation in Boston and the French-Canadian Legacy of Manchester, on Thursday, May 13, 2021 at 7:00pm. The virtual preview event will feature representatives from each city of the Franco-Route of New England, including Woonsocket, RI, Lowell, MA, Manchester, NH, Biddeford, ME, and Lewiston-Auburn, ME.

Speakers will include Anne Conway, Director of Museum of Work & Culture, and members of the French-Canadian Legacy of Manchester, as well as John Tousignant, Executive Director of the Franco-American Centre; Paul Marion, poet and former administrator for the U.S. Department of the Interior in the development of Lowell’s national park; Jeff Caulfield, Business Development Specialist in Travel & Tourism for Geocaching; Camden Martin, French teacher at the St. Dominic Academy in Auburn; and Marie-Claude Francoeur, Delegate of Quebec in New England.

Geocaching is a massive, modern day scavenger hunt for caches, or site-specific hidden objects. Nearly 4 million people are already part of the global Geocaching community, with caches in 191 countries and every continent. A GeoTour is a series of grouped geocache sites which share a common theme or history.

The New England Franco-Route GeoTour will highlight several Franco-American cultural sites in cities across New England. In addition to the traditional treasure hunt aspect of Geocaching, this GeoTour will teach the historical significance of its cache sites in English and in French. This makes the New England Franco-Route GeoTour a fun and uniquely engaging educational experience for individuals, families, friends and classes of all ages.
