Waterman Center Interpretive Building Closed
All Trails and Nature Preserves Remain Open
Dear fellow nature lovers, families, educators, hikers and explorers alike. It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to temporarily close the Waterman Center Interpretive Building at 403 Hilton Rd. Apalachin, NY in accordance with current recommendations to slow and reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). All programs and general volunteer activities have been suspended until further notice.
Please note that ALL of our hiking trails and nature preserves will remain open to the public and free of charge from dawn until dusk, 365 days a year as always. We strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of this resource to get out of the house, breathe fresh air, exercise, and de-stress. During these trying times, we are fortunate to have such a beautiful and beneficial landscape to give us respite from harrowing circumstances.
