Minnewaska State Park Preserve

Bring your family to the Minnewaska Nature Center to make food for the winter birds. We'll use pine cones to make a delicious snack that you can hang in trees near your house. Then, you can watch as your neighborhood birds enjoy the treats! Stay after the craft for a relatively easy hike along Beacon Hill Carriage Road, where children can play a bird scavenger hunt game and look for raptors soaring near the cliffs at the end of the carriage road. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
