  Guided Canoe Trips "Discover the fascinating habitats of the estuary with us!"

Our interpretive canoe programs focus on the nearshore environments of the tidal Hudson River, especially the natural history of Constitution Marsh and the surrounding Hudson Highlands. It's easily the best deal around, as our own expert Audubon naturalists lead you through winding channels lined with tall, elegant marsh grasses, searching for hidden wildlife. Enjoy the physical activity and beautiful scenery, and learn the secrets of the Sanctuary.

Reservations are required for all canoe trips. We provide the canoes, paddles, and life jackets, and a safety lesson precedes the trip. At least one adult with paddling experience must accompany each canoe. Trips are tide and weather dependent, and normally last between two and three hours.

If you are planning a kayak or canoe trip through the marsh on your own, public water access is provided at the Foundry Dock Park in Cold Spring and not at the Audubon Center.

845-265-5537 
  The Chapel of Our Lady Restoration is located at 45 Market Street, Cold Spring, NY 10516 in Putnam County.

From Chapel of Our Lady Restoration "Its situation, opposite West Point, on a high rock overlooking the Hudson, and surrounded by majestic mountains, is extremely well chosen, and the traveler. . .cannot but be struck with its romantic beauty. By the New York Mirror, November 1934"

"The Chapel Restoration, Cold Spring, New York, was built in 1833, in the Greek Revival style. Abandoned in 1906, it was a charred, weather-ravaged ruin until its restoration in the 1970s. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

"In 1996, with funds from the estate of Hugh Holt, a balcony based on the original was built and a tracker action pipe organ custom-built by George Bozeman was installed. The chapel also has a Steinway Grand Piano, once owned by the Livingston family.

"The historic chapel, breathtaking in its simplicity, is the acoustical equal of the world’s great concert halls. Against the backdrop of the Hudson River and Highlands, its dramatic setting inspires a bond between artist and audience. The 1893 Steinway grand piano, once owned by the Livingston family who had a country house up river, graces the stage. In the choir loft is an equally distinguished pipe organ of the kind played in the 17th through the 19th centuries."

The word is "The Sunday Music Series, April to November, features musicians of worldwide distinction. Concerts, primarily classical, with at least one each season of jazz or blues, country or bluegrass, are presented once a month at 4. Free of charge, contributions welcome. Series established in 2001."

Fahnestock Winter Park offers 15 km of machine groomed, tracked and mapped trails for beginning and experienced skiers and snowshoers. Families find the park particularly enjoyable because it offers easy terrain to ski on near a warming lodge.

The Park features a warming lodge with ski rentals, lessons, food and beverages, and restrooms. Rentals are available on a first come, first served basis. The Winter Park is located at an elevation of 1,100 feet, helping to capture additional snow during storms. Along with a forested northwest trail system, this helps maintain a good snow base.

  Foundry Dock Park
Village of Cold Spring, Putnam County
Hudson River Valley, New York State

Foundry Dock Park officially opened in June 2006. This riverfront park is enjoyed by many visitors and residents who come to relax, enjoy the spectacular views of the Hudson, or launch a kayak in the Hudson River at Cold Spring.

From Scenic Hudson: "It's hard to believe this riverfront oasis - a perfect spot to marvel at the Hudson Highlands - was the busy loading dock of the West Point Foundry. Located just southeast of here, the foundry was established in 1818 to produce artillery for the U.S. government. During the Civil War, it manufactured Parrott guns, cannons whose accuracy is credited for the North's victory. Until its 1911 closure, the foundry also produced some of America's first locomotives, steamships and pipes for New York City's water system. Finished goods were transported by rail to a pier stretching into the river off Foundry Dock Park (you can see a portion of its remains at low tide) and then shipped worldwide. Park visitors can view a simulation of the foundry's rail line and enjoy wildlife attracted to a variety of native plants. For paddlers, this is a great place to begin excursions into Foundry Cove and Audubon New York's Constitution Marsh Sanctuary, a haven for waterfowl and migratory birds. History buffs shouldn't miss the picturesque 1833 Chapel of Our Lady next to the park, built for foundry workers.

Constitution Marsh
No paddling experience necessary however, the Marsh is tidal. Because you have to paddle under the railroad trestle, the ideal time to enter the Marsh is two hours before high tide and leave two hours after high tide. There are shorter times to paddle part way into the Marsh. Please call the shop for more information.

    Note: Please be advised that if you paddle into the Marsh at low tide, you will get stuck in the mud and disrupt the very sensitive eco-system.

A Bit of History about the Library
"The Julia L. Butterfield Memorial Library was established by the will of the late Julia L. Butterfield. Mrs. Butterfield died on August 6, 1913 at the age of 90.

"Mrs. Butterfield was born on December 19, 1824, in St. Marks' Place, New York City, NY. She moved to Cold Spring in 1852, with her first husband Fredrick James. Up until the time of her death, she spent a large portion of her time at her beautiful Cold Spring residence known as Cragside. Cragside was located on the site of the new Haldane Central School District's high school building. The gatehouse to Cragside still stands today on the corner of Route 9D (Morris Ave) and Craigside Drive.

"Mrs. Butterfield loved to entertain, and her frequent guests included, the Grand Duke of Russia, the Count of Paris, Presidents of the United States, several governors, famous generals and bishops.

"Many of the paintings that hang in the Library today once hung in Cragside. The most famous of which is "A Pic-Nic on the Hudson" painted in 1863 by Hudson River School artist Thomas Rossiter. Rossiter also lived Cold Spring and was a friend of Mrs Butterfield. The painting depicts a group of friends and neighbors enjoying a fashionable picnic on Constitution Island. The group includes Julia James, the future Mrs. Daniell Butterfield, whose estate endowed the library in 1913."

  Cold Spring, Putnam County
Hudson River Valley, New York State

From Scenic Hudson: "Hikers at West Point Foundry Preserve enjoy a tranquil soundtrack—the gentle murmur of Foundry Brook. That's a far cry from the din greeting 19th-century visitors to the sprawling West Point Foundry that filled this ravine. Established in 1818 to supply the U.S. government with artillery, the ironworks employed hundreds of workers who produced some of America's first steam engines, locomotives and ironclad ships, as well as pipes for New York City's water system and Parrott guns, cannon credited with winning the Civil War. The foundry's owners also were business pioneers, among the first to control every aspect of manufacturing, from raw material to product distribution.

"After foundry operations ceased in 1911, nature slowly reclaimed the land. Today trails follow old rail beds and pass extensive remains of the casting house, boring mill and other essential foundry structures that led to the preserve's inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. Exciting new interpretive features—including a full-scale sculptural model of the 36-foot water wheel that powered the boring mill—tell the story of the 87-acre site's contributions to America's Industrial Revolution and the Civil War, as well as the cleanup leading to its astonishing ecological renewal. Now West Point Foundry Preserve is a great place to escape the din while connecting with the Hudson Highlands' past and its diverse wildlife."

845-265-3638 
  Boscobel is located at 1601 Route 9D, Garrison NY10524, Putnam County in one of the Hudson Valley River Towns. Boscobel is a neoclassical style mansion (built 1804-1808) located on a bluff overlooking the Hudson River. This is where the river cuts through the Appalachian chain of mountains, creating the Hudson Highlands. The mountains on both sides rise up more than 1000 feet from the water's edge at what is the narrowest, deepest and most treacherous stretch of the river.

From the front lawn at Boscobel, one can see the Constitution Marsh Sanctuary and Constitution Island immediately below, the Bear Mountain Bridge to the south, the United States Military Academy at West Point across the river, and Storm King Mountain to the north. Spectacular views of the Hudson River and the Hudson Highlands, including Crow’s Nest, Storm King, and Sugar Loaf Mountains are visible from Boscobel’s grounds. The Hudson has been an inspiration for artists through the centuries, and great works by Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Thomas Doughty, Thomas P. Rossiter, and Frederic Church, have depicted the majesty of the River and its surroundings.

Boscobel was originally located in Montrose, New York, about fifteen miles south of the present site, with views overlooking the Hudson River at Haverstraw Bay. It was built by States Morris Dyckman (1755-1806), a descendant of one of the early Dutch families of New Amsterdam.

The Boscobel Mansion dates from the early nineteenth century and contains one of the nation's leading collections of furniture and decorative arts from the Federal period with high-style furniture by Duncan Phyfe and other recognized New York cabinetmakers of the day. Much of Dyckman's English china, silver, glass, and part of his library have also survived and are on exhibit.

Points of Interest
There are many tourist attractions and things to do close to Boscobel. Visitors can explore the quaint nineteenth century village of Cold Spring with its antique and specialty shops, Historic West Point, Storm King Art Center, Theatre, and beautiful Parks including Bear Mountain State Park.

Did you know that the Hudson River was recently named one of ten "American Heritage Rivers."

Click to enlarge photo of Constitution Marsh sign Constitution Marsh Audubon Center & Sanctuary is located at 127 Warren Landing Road, Garrison NY 10524, Putnam County in the Hudson Valley. Constitution Marsh is located approximately 55 miles north of New York City. It is on the east side of the Hudson River, two miles south of the village of Cold Spring.

Constitution Marsh Trail, moderate hike, 2 miles. This out and back hike in the Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary has a short difficult section leading to a boardwalk into the marsh. For information about the hiking trail and more about Constitution Marsh, call the Center at 845-265-2601.

The sign reads:
Constitution Marsh

" No habitat nurture more life than a tidal marsh. Marsh plants feed animals such as Muskrats and Snapping Turtles. Decomposed plants provide food for countless shrimp, crabs, and even tinier animals which in turn support many species of fish. Young fish feed in the rich marsh "nursery" and then ventue down the Hudson to the sea.

"Constitution Marsh teems with life at all times of the year and changes with each season. The summer begins with the annual ritual in June of female Snapping Turtles climbing the hill to lay their eggs on Boscobel's grounds. From June through September, the marsh below is green with cattails, Wild Rice, Pickerelweed, and Arrowhead. Marsh Wrens, Red-winged Blackbirds, Least Bitterns, Yellow Warblers, and colorful Wood Ducks nest in the marsh. White-tailed Deer visit the wetlands to escape from biting insects.

"The cattails turn from green to reddish brown in the fall, and migratory birds stop on their way south for the winter. Osprey, Marsh Hawks, Swallows, Black Ducks, Mallards, and Green winged Teal rest and feed amoung the cattails and bulrushed before continuing on the migrations. In winter, plans die back in preparation for a new round of growth, and the marsh turns a brownish straw color. Bald Eagles are often spotted at this time of year surveying the marsh from their perches in the trees at Constituion Island. Finally, with the coming of Spring, the cycle begins anew. Migrants reappers, plants sprout new leaves, and the marsh again teems with life.

"Contstitution Marsh was purchased in 1969 by Lila Wallace and Laurance Rockefeller. Now a part of Hudson Highlands State Park, it has been managed the the National Audubon Society since 1970.

"Constitution Island was part of an original land grant made by the British crown to the Philipse family and remained in its possession until Henry Warner, a New York City lawyer, purchased the property and the adjacent marsh in 1836. His unsuccessful attempt to convert the marsh to a wild rice farm left the numerous tidal chaneels visible today. Warner's daughters Susan and Anna lived in the family home on Constitution Island until Anna died in 1915 at the age of eighty-seven. Due to financial losses suffered by their father in the 1840's, they both started writing to help support the family and became knows as the 'Bronte sisters of America.' Together, the sisters had over one hundred books published. Susan's first novel The Wide, Wide World (1850) sold more than a million copies in numerous editions. Anna Warner wrote the well know religious hymn Jesus Loves Me, which was published in 1860.

"Philanthropist Margaret Slocum [Mrs. Russell] Sage purchased the Island in 1908, and she and Anna Warner presented it to the United States governement as a joint gift with the stipulation that it be an addition to West Point. In 1917, West Point cadets created the Martlaer's Rock Association (now the Constitution Island Association), a not-for-profit organization which maintains the property for the enjoyment of the public."

845-424-3812 
  Manitoga, The Russel Wright Design Center, is located at 584 Route 9D, Garrison NY 10524, Putnam County in the Hudson Valley. Hike over 4 miles of paths through a 75-acre designed landscape with links to the Appalachian Trail.

"In the 1930s, 40s and 50s, the signature on a set of dinnerware or piece of furniture elicited instant response. At that time, Wright was one of the best known designers in the U.S. At the apex of his career, Wright left New York City and moved his base of operations to Garrison. It was here that he created a unique home and designed landscape. He named it Manitoga, meaning place of the great spirit in Algonquin. Wright shared the Native Americans' respect for the earth.

"When Wright first found this property in 1942, it had been damaged by a century of quarrying and lumbering. Over the next three decades, until his death in 1976, he carefully redesigned and re-sculpted Manitoga's 75 acres using native plants, his training as a theater designer and sculptor, and his innovative design ideas. Though the landscape appears natural, it is actually a careful composition of woodland trees, rocks, ferns, mosses, and wild flowers.

"Wright created over four miles of paths that wind over creeks, into woods, among boulders, and through ferns and mountain laurel to focus visitors' attention on the importance of living in harmony with nature.

"Manitoga is the only 20th century modern homesite open to the public in New York, and one of few on the east coast. Wright considered it his most important creative effort. In 2006, Manitoga was named a National Historic Landmark."

Garrison, Putnam County
Hudson River Valley, New York State

From Scenic Hudson: "Garrison, Putnam County (126 acres) -This rocky promontory originally was called Mystery Point, for reasons obscured in history. You don't need to be a detective to uncover the preserve's myriad treasures.

"From there, you can pick up hiking trails to explore more of the preserve's scenic and ecological wonders. These include Manitou Marsh, an important nursery for striped bass, and Copper Mine Brook, which features several small, picturesque cascades. But the most exciting trek hugs the Hudson shoreline atop dramatic rock outcroppings, affording with each step an ever-changing but always magnificent perspective of the river."

Note: Although this property is now privately owned, an agreement with the landowner allows for public access to the preserve and its trail network. Please respect the owner's privacy by paying attention to all signs and avoiding areas marked as private.

Listen to the sounds of frogs and other wildlife in the pond. Visit Manitou Point, one of many scenic views in Putnam County.

Although the mansion is not open to the public, four miles of scenic winding trails and surrounding carriage roads, are open.

Note: Edward Livingston purchased the property in 1894 and turned it into an elaborate estate with buildings to house his livestock. In 1897, he finished a two-story mansion; now the afore mentioned national headquarters for Outward Bound.

The Manitou Point Nature Preserve is 135-acres on a peninsula jutting into the Hudson River. This area offers six short but different hikes, appealing to hikers with different skills and interests.

The following is credited to the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference: "For an exciting and adventurous hike, the River Loop Trail is tailor-made. Beginning 400 feet to the north of the mansion, the trail offers the hiker a spectacular view of North Sugar Loaf Mountain on the east bank and West Point on the west. Heading south, the trail merges briefly with a carriage road and then literally hugs the edge of the Hudson River: there are no guard rails between you and the river 10 feet below. Note: This trail may be closed in icy weather. For your safety, respect a closed trail sign. The trail is paved with fallen pine needles and acorns and spongy moss, which makes for a cushioned feeling underfoot. A colonnade of closely-spaced tall trees flanks the narrow trail and gives the appearance of a royal promenade."

After a day of birding or hiking at Manitou, eat out at one of the excellent Restaurants in Putnam County, New York offering natural foods and healthy options.

Storm King and Crow’s Nest mountains rise across from Little Stony Point. Bull Hill, Breakneck Ridge and Beacon Hill stand behind. These mountains are part of the AppalachianRange, and the gorge at Little Stony Point is the only place the range is cut by a river. Glacial activity deposited an immense granite formation here. At the turn of the last century the rockwas mined and used in the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge and other projects. A tramway brought the granite from the mines to a dock at Little Stony Point.
