Food for the Birds at Minnewaska

Minnewaska State Park Preserve
(845) 255-0752

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.

Tuesday Trek: Wild Orchard Walk at Minnewaska

Join Laura Conner, Environmental Educator, for a two-mile wander along various carriage roads and the mowed paths through the old golf course and wild orchard. These old, overgrown fields, edged with abundant blueberry bushes and patches of deciduous forests, used to provide the food on the tables of the elegant hotels that were once found here. Come look for "antique" apples while you enjoy the magnificent Catskills view. Pre-registration is required by calling Minnewaska at 845-255-0752.
