What's Included

Join our Director of Conservation Science, Dr. Elizabeth Long, for a field trip as part of her Butterfly Big Year!  She is trying to count as many species of butterflies as possible on Mohonk Preserve Lands in 2016, and you can help her add to her tally.  Explore the fields, meadows, and woodlands of Spring Farm, where Dr. Long will offer pointers on butterfly identification, point out plants that are essential to caterpillar and adult survival, and discuss butterfly conservation needs and survival strategies.

About This Organizer

In partnership with our members, supporters, and volunteers, we protect and manage over 8,000 acres of mountain ridges, forests, fields, streams, ponds, and other unique and beautiful places. As New York's largest nonprofit nature preserve, each year we welcome over 165,000 visitors. 

The Preserve's devoted volunteers, dedicated donors, and expert staff all work in harmony for a common cause - to create a place where people and nature thrive. To accomplish our goal of protecting one of the region's most treasured and beautiful places, we conduct programs in four key areas - environmental education, land protection, land stewardship, and conservation science.

At the Preserve, you can enjoy scenic beauty, outdoor activities, and peace and quiet, all just 90 miles from New York City. Our carriage roads and trails are perfect for hiking, running, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. We're also the home of "Gunks" climbing and bouldering, and one of the most visited climbing destinations in North America.
