Establishing Clear Goals and Working with the Community: Rockefeller Preserve Collaboration

The Rockefeller State Park Preserve is a scenic slice of undeveloped land on the banks of the Hudson River. Its woodlands, meadows, lake, and streams are laced with a unique system of carriage roads and superb views of the Hudson River. As one of the last remaining undeveloped tracts in lower Westchester County, the Preserve supports an abundance of wildlife including geese, deer, brown trout, bass woodpeckers, buffalo, birds, wild turkeys, coyotes, and hoot owls. Its visitor center and staff naturalist provide exhibits and guided walks on the natural and historic wonders of the Preserve.
