John Willison Green is a legendary figure in the history of Sasquatch research. He wrote some of the most informative books on the subject and he acquired a database of sightings and encounters that is invaluable and unrivaled. He documented the subject like no one else and corresponded with anyone interested in the Sasquatch.
John’s contributions are well known; his epic tome Sasquatch: the Apes Among Us is the penultimate sasquatch book. After many years of tireless interest and inquiry, it’s time to gather in John’s hometown and celebrate his lifetime contribution to our bigfoot world. Please join us April 8, 9 & 10 for a weekend in Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia.
Please, for further details about availability of THE FINAL TICKETS, please contact Tom Yamarone.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
