Located on Huguenot Street in the town and village of New Paltz, this 56-acre property has relatively open areas dominated by grasses and herbaceous plants. These provide rich and varied habitat opportunities for a wide range flora and fauna.
The Sanctuary includes an “oxbow,” a complex of ponds and wetlands remaining from a tightly-curved meander cut off when the Wallkill River straightened its course hundreds of years ago.
The Nyquist-Harcourt Wildlife Sanctuary is owned and managed by the Wallkill Valley Land Trust.
