Please note that we are a small facility and have very limited space for public parking. The trail has moderately steep and rocky sections, so sturdy footwar is strongly recommended. No dogs are allowed at the site. We encourage you to please carefully read our FAQ page to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit. You can visit the Marsh as space allows, and walk the trails between 9 am and 6 pm. Please contact us if you would like to make arrangements for group visits or to visit outside our normal hours. The Visitor's Center is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm, with limited hours during the winter.
The marsh is irreplaceable habitat and provides refuge to considerable wildlife of the Hudson River Estuary. Common breeding birds include Marsh Wren, Least Bittern, Louisiana Waterthrush, Bald Eagle, Virginia Rail and many others. Our Center exhibit is highlighted by a 500-gallon aquarium that allows you to come face to face with fish, crabs and other wildlife of the Hudson River. A seasonal live video feed features an intimate view into the lives nesting Eastern Phoebes. The hiking trail leads to a boardwalk that is accessible to families, birders, artists, or anyone who seeks to experience the natural side of the Hudson River Valley.
