The Manitoba Geocaching Association and The International Peace Garden invite you to join us in extending our “Hands Across the Border” - a geocaching event linking caching friends in two countries inspired by a challenge issued by the “Hands Across the Border” event between BC and Washington state!!

Prior to arriving at the gate entrance to the International Peace Garden, visitors will drive past the USA Port of Entry or the Canadian Port of Entry. You are no longer in either of these two countries. Departing the International Peace Garden, a stop is required at the Port of Entry, of the country you wish to enter. Border Services requires and records identification on all vehicle passengers. A passport (or Nexus card) is the preferred document and expedites the process however, a birth certificate and government issued ID can be used instead of a passport.
