Building the birding community in New York's Hudson-Mohawk Region
The 111-acre Sanctuary is open to the public from dawn to dusk and contains several miles of well marked and well maintained trails. But, be aware that the trails may be muddy and awkward during wetter times. Please report any problems you discover (e.g. downed trees, blocked trails) to the HMBC Sanctuary Committee Chair. View the Sanctuary brocuhure or download an Adobe Acrobat (pdf) copy of the map and brochure.
Educational and research programs and proposals are welcomed. A large file of information about the Sanctuary, including a flora and avifauna, is available for your guidance. Wheelchair access is available at the Oakmont Street trailhead. Please direct inquiries and informational contributions to the HMBC Sanctuary Committee Chair.
