Land trust sponsors community event on Oct. 10
As part of the celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Hudson Highlands Land Trust (HHLT) will celebrate with a community fireworks display on Friday, Oct. 10, (raindate Oct. 11). Scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m., the fireworks should be visible from several vantage points on both sides of the Hudson River including Garrison’s Landing, Scenic Hudson Foundry Dock Park, Cold Spring Waterfront Park, Zulu Time Rooftop Bar & Lounge (Hotel Thayer, West Point), and the Route 9W Scenic Overlook.
The fireworks are only one aspect of HHLT’s year-long anniversary celebration. The land trust has organized three other activities and projects in tandem with this organizational milestone: the 25 Treasures of the Highlands Geocaching Adventure, a free self-guided “treasure hunt” that brings participants to 25 of the most picturesque and historically significant locations in the Hudson Highlands; a dinner gala at Boscobel House and Gardens, also Oct. 10; and Connecting: Celebrating the People and Places of the Hudson Highlands, a commemorative book featuring photography of Nelsonville resident Christine Ashburn and essays by local authors, due out in November.
HHLT is an accredited, community-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection of the natural resources, rural character, and scenic beauty of the Hudson Highlands. Visit hhlt.org.
