We offer education programs for learners of all ages. Our programs are Pine Bush focused, aligned with learning standards, and incorporate best practices in education and interpretation. We offer programs for families, adults, and groups including school groups of all ages, from pre-school to college and everything in between. Programs include hikes, lectures and interactive presentations on a variety of subjects including history, plants, animals and geology.
Special events are opportunities to join your neighbors, friends and local organizations to show support for pine bush. Whether its Smokey Bear Day, Earth Day or our Annual Lupine Festival our special events are fun activities for the whole family.
Dress for the weather, wear sturdy walking shoes or if there is snow on the ground boots, and bring drinking water. Bring a rain coat if there is rain in the forecast. Check out the local weather for the preserve here.
Hunting, fishing and trapping are recreational activities that are carefully regulated in the preserve and across NYS.
