Nature Night Out May 10, 2024


The Albany Pine Bush Preserve presents "Nature Night Out", a series of evening events that invite everyone to drop everything and get into nature. The Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center will extend operations until 7:30pm on each of these days, capitalizing on those longer sunlit hours.

Visitors of all ages can enjoy live music while dining on a meal from food truck vendors, go on a StoryWalk adventure along the trail and learn about the natural & cultural history of the Pine Bush with interactive Discovery Center exhibits. A fun evening out in nature awaits you at 195 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205
