It's not Pokemon Go, but smartphones are helping people find a different type of treasure.
 
Geocaching is making waves all over the world and Fort Saskatchewan is embracing the opportunity to connect people through exploring the outdoors and physical activity.
 
In geocaching, most players are able to track the coordinates of the caches on their smartphone and track them down with hints. Once you find the cache, you can sign your name in a (usually) hidden container to keep track of everyone who has found the item.
 
"The reason why I like to do it is because when people find my caches, they smile and admire them and it brightens their day," said Joanna Dyndor, a local geocacher.
 
According to geocaching.com, the main tracking website and app, there are 2,233 geocaches near Fort Saskatchewan.
