Hudson Highlands Land Trust

The Hudson Highlands is a region of simple, yet dramatic beauty, astounding biodiversity, and major historical significance. HHLT is dedicated to conserving this remarkable region forever—please join us!

HHLT celebrates 25 years of protecting the highlands -- October 10th Gala is the centerpiece

This year marks the Land Trust's 25th anniversary and we've planned a number of exciting ways to celebrate with our members, supporters, friends and neighbors. Our 25 Treasures of the Highlands Geocache Adventure is free and available to everyone. We will also be introducing a commemorative book, Connecting: Celebrating the People and Places of the Hudson Highlands, due out in November.

Coming up this week: HHLT's 25th Anniversary Gala Dinner on Friday, October 10th, 2014 at Boscobel House and Gardens in Garrison, NY. We plan to pull out all the stops for this event and make it a celebration as big and beautiful as our mission area! We hope you can join us for this very special evening.

For guests who have purchased tickets, the attire recommendation is Elegantly casual for an evening outdoors. The event will take place outside on the Belvedere and Great Lawn (cocktails and dessert) and inside a heated tent (dinner and program). In all cases, attendees will be walking on grass, so please keep this in mind when making footwear selections. We recommend stylish and comfortable clothes that are layered for warmth as temps will likely dip down to 50 degrees later in the evening. Ladies might consider a dress, skirt or dress slacks paired with a jacket, sweater or wrap. Gentlemen might consider a button-down shirt with sport coat and/or sweater or a suit and tie -- both are perfectly appropriate. We look forward to seeing you there!

If you are not attending, you can still celebrate with us on the 10th by viewing our Fall Fireworks Show at 9:30pm. The display will take place over the Hudson just south of Constitution Island. Suggested viewing locations are Garrison Landing, Scenic Hudson Foundry Dock Park, Cold Spring Waterfront Park, Zulu Time Rooftop Bar & Lounge (Hotel Thayer, West Point), and Route 9W Scenic Overlook.


Discover 25 Treasures of the highlands: HHLT's 25th Anniversary Geocaching Adventure

Join the Hunt! Geocaching is an outdoor treasure hunting activity that uses GPS-enabled devices.  To find a treasure, hunters use GPS coordinates to locate the area in which the geocache container is hidden and then attempt to find it.  HHLT has created the 25 Treasures of the Highlands geocache series to celebrate the Hudson Highlands Land Trust's 25th Anniversary.

The 25 Treasures of the Highlands geocaches have all been placed to spotlight the region’s natural resources, history, and beauty.  Can you find them all?  First one to locate all 25 Treasures of the Highlands will receive a special prize!

Here's a printable list of coordinates and descriptions. You can also play along and interact with other geocachers on

A great way to ensure you know about all the activities and events we offer is to become a member. Membership is free and will guarantee that you receive invitations and announcements about everything that's going on at HHLT during this extra special year. Join now!
