WATERGRASS SANCTUARY: 19 acres • Philipstown, Putnam County 

Adding to the 49 acres we previously protected via a conservation easement, we partnered with the Hudson Highlands Land Trust, Putnam Highlands Audubon Society and Open Space Institute to increase the size of this prime bird habitat and facilitate safe public access to it.

In June 2015, Scenic Hudson and partners added 19 acres to this popular birdwatching destination, enhancing habitat and facilitating safer public access.
