For more than 30 years, this ten-acre sanctuary, owned by the Village of Scarsdale, has been a haven for a wide variety of animals and birds, as well as for people.

With a meadow, fruit orchard, woodlots, swamp, and an apiary for bees, the Nature Center is perfect for family outings. Folks can stroll the trails or take advantage of the 8-mile trail that connects the Center to Pinebrook Ball Park for a lengthy hike.

The Trailside Nature Museum offers nature-related exhibits, and families will find opportunities throughout the year to enjoy Special Events and Programs. The many Children's Programs, including after-school programs, help introduce them to the world of nature. Call for schedules.

The Native American Village is a recent addition to the Center where visitors can explore the life and culture of the Lenape and Iroquois Tribes through exhibits that focus on how Indians lived with nature.

School and Scout Groups can participate in wonderful hands-on Programs in forest and field ecology, geology and endangered species, the Adirondacks and the Catskills, the Hudson River, Northeast Woodland Indians, and many other topics. Programs can be customized to fit the science, social studies and interdisciplinary guidelines of New York State or even for Scout merit badges. Programs are for elementary grades and last from 30 to 50 minutes.
