Hike Hudson 2017!  In Search of Bigfoot (9/1 – 11/30)

It’s been nine months since Bigfoot (or at least Bigfoot’s life-sized silhouette)  has been spotted in Hudson parks. Now that leaves are falling and the foliage is thinning out, participants in “Hike Hudson: In Search of Bigfoot” will have a chance to spot Bigfoot again.

“Hike Hudson: In Search of Bigfoot” encourages area hikers to explore the wide variety of Hudson’s parks.  The Friends of Hudson Parks’ annual hiking event runs September 1 – November 30. Bigfoot’s “shadows” will be hiding in each of the thirteen parks included in the event. Click here for more information.

Hike Hudson and other 2017 activities are made possible in part through the support of “Best Friends” annual sponsor, Hudson Preschool Parents.

2017 Geocaching Adventure

The Friends of Hudson Parks has launched another in its Geocaching Adventure series in 2017. Find caches hidden in each of 6 parks noted on the Geocaching entry form (downloaded here) and record each cache’s code number on the form. With numbers from each of the 6 caches you will be able to determine the coordinates for the FOHP Bonus – 2017 cache. Place a sticker from each cache on the form and turn it in per the instructions on the form by November 30, 2017. The first 100 participants to turn in a completed form will receive a 2017 Friends of Hudson Parks Pathtag (collectible coin) and a chance to win a $100 gift certificate from Appalachian Outfitters. More cache information can be found here, at Geocaching.com. Please note you will need to register and create a free account at Geocaching.com.

Friends of Hudson Parks is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which actively supports the mission of the Hudson Parks through volunteerism, advocacy, promotion and fund raising.
