Cody “ROCKS”

Written by on June 20, 2018

A Cody teacher has started a city-wide game of hide and seek – with rocks.
Heidi Galagan, who is a para-educator working with severe special needs children at Sunset Elementary, has begun a social media treasure hunt that she calls “Cody Rocks.” The game is part of a national movement in which you paint rocks and hide them around the community. People who find the rocks can take them and hide them elsewhere, whether here in town or somewhere else. It’s a social media-driven activity, as people who find the rocks are encouraged to post their find on the Facebook page “Cody Rocks.”

Galagan says she got the idea while spending time in Casper, where the game is being played, just as it is in communities all over the country.

Galagan says she felt it was a way to bring some positivity to social media.

Galagan says that anyone can play – they simply paint a bunch of rocks and hide them in and around Cody. She suggests that anyone painting rocks put the words “Cody Rocks Facebook” on the back, so that those who find it can take a picture, post it on the page, and then re-hide it.

Galagan adds that rocks from other communities and states have made their way to Cody, just as Cody’s rocks have been transported to other cities. She says it’s a unique souvenir, and a fun way to connect people.
