The coin is a two-part set, locally made of myrtlewood and glass. Amy’s Garden Art in Springfield did the woodwork for the coin and Cornerstone Glass in Eugene created the inset just for this occasion.

The Territorial Highway Edition is the fourth installment of the Eugene, Cascades & Coast GeoTour, a partnership with Geocaching.com. In October 2012, Travel Lane County launched the McKenzie River Edition, which was Oregon’s first official GeoTour and - at the time - one of only eleven worldwide. The Florence Edition launched in March 2013. The Oakridge/Westfir Edition kicked off in October 2013.
McKenzie geocoins are no longer available, and a very limited number of Florence coins remain. There is still time to earn the Oakridge/Westfir geocoin this spring.
Cottage Grove is conveniently located near I-5 south of Eugene. Book your stay in Cottage Grove to be among the first to complete the Eugene, Cascades & Coast GeoTour – Territorial Highway Edition.
Territorial Highway Edition coins will be available at the Daffodil Drive in Junction City March 15 - 16 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. The Daffodil Drive is a yearly event at the Long Tom Grange. Don't miss their famous gooey cinnamon rolls.
