St. Charles County


St. Charles City Parks: allowed with permit. The cache containers must be clear and display the words "Official Geocache" or “Official Letterbox” clearly on the outside of the container and they will assign a number that should also go on the label. (2009)
MO UR4Me helped them develop the permit, which they have never placed on their website, so it has been posted on Gateway Letterboxers: PERMIT.
They have not been able to keep up with the permits received; the Chief Ranger unofficially told MO UR4Me to put her boxes out and send in the permits, so she recommends doing the same. Then if you ever actually receive a permit number, you/someone can add it to the box.
