Geocache Description:

What did the mama ghost say to the little ghost as they got in the car to drive over to Brinton Brook for this cache?

"Don't forget to put on your sheet belt!"

Here's a cache designed to celebrate Halloween in an underutilized park. We were here in the springtime and really enjoyed our walk through the park, so I decided to come back and hide this cache!

The cache is preloaded with a variety of Halloween themed items plus a special bonus for the FTF.

About Brinton Brook Sanctuary:
The original 112 acres of  Brinton Brook Sanctuary were deeded to the National Audubon Society in 1957 by Laura Brinton following the desire of her late husband, Willard Brinton and herself to permanently protect their land as a wildlife refuge.  After Laura Brinton's death in 1975, an additional 17 acres were added to the refuge by Mr. Brinton's niece, Ruth Brinton Perera.  
Willard and Laura Brinton found their homesite in the early 1900s by walking from Peekskill and following a topographic map.  When Laura Brinton donated the land to the Audubon Society, she called it a "living museum of this region."  
Saw Mill River Audubon Society sanctuaries are open year-round from dawn until dusk for members and the general public for study and enjoyment. Guided group tours of the sanctuaries are available upon request. Trail maps are available for the six sanctuaries with trails and bird lists and nature trail booklets are available for Brinton Brook.
