Hawthorne sign_180wThis 34-acre parcel was donated to the Foundation in 1979 as part of the development of the Hawthorne Lake area. It includes a large marsh designated as wetlands by New York State, which makes hiking and exploring this parcel difficult for humans, but provides a sanctuary for many species of wildlife and many unusual plants.

Dog Walking Policy

To ensure the well being of environmentally sensitive plants and animals, the ecology of water resources, as well as protecting the pristine and safe conditions for all visitors to our properties, dogs must be leashed and under the control of their owners at all times on all preserves.

We are grateful for your cooperation!
