Our preserves are open from dawn to dusk year-round for walking, birdwatching, educational and other passive recreational uses. Our preserves have something special to offer at every time of the year: spring peepers and wildflowers in spring, butterflies in summer, migrating birds and changing colors in autumn and peaceful snow-covered trails peppered with animal tracks in winter.
When walking the preserves, be prepared with proper shoes, water, insect repellant and/or sunscreen. Bring binoculars to observe wildlife from a distance, proceed slowly, and most of all, enjoy the sights and sounds of your surroundings. To minimize disturbance to wild places, we do not maintain elaborate trail infrastructure or facilities at preserves. To reduce the impact of your visit and to ensure the continued protection of these areas, we ask that you please observe the following rules for your safety and well-being, as well as that of resident plants and wildlife.
Your thoughtfulness and cooperation are appreciated and will help preserve the natural legacy of this region for future generations. Please report trail obstructions and prohibited activities to Matt Levy at (518) 690-7851 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you, and enjoy your visit.February 04, 2013
