The date for the second annual Great Henderson Hunt is March 3, happening from 2 to 4 p.m. at, where else, Henderson Park in Tucker. Like last year's wildlife treasure hunt, teams will be given a map and a list of clues, and they will then set off on the wooden trails to find hidden "treasures" representing the diversity of wildlife in Henderson Park.

The Friends of Henderson Park is gearing up for this year's hunt and collecting some fabulous prizes for the winning teams. Register here and see photos from last year's hunt.
Fundraiser for Friends of Henderson Park brings together families and friends, young and old.
