NEW FOR 2017! This interactive and engaging exhibit will provide a new level of engagement for visitors featuring interactive elements for kids of all ages. Join us for a bird picnic, don your own set of wings, settle down in a comfy nest, observe bird behavior and see how your wingspan compares to some of the Hudson Valley’s biggest birds. While you play, find out what makes birds amazing. How do woodpeckers make holes without getting brain damage? Why are hawks so good at hunting? What are birds saying to each other when they make all that noise? Which birds can you expect to see in your back yard?
This exhibit made possible in part by The Dorr Foundation and Orange & Rockland Utilities.
A multi-sensory experience full of the flora and fauna native to the Hudson Estuary. Follow the journey as water trickles down a highland creek into a wetland pond. The pond empties into a freshwater stream which then joins the Hudson River Estuary.
Visit our many native reptiles and amphibians on exhibit.
Learn about their diets, habitat and fascinating adaptations.
