Rockefeller State Park Preserve Website

Rockefeller State Park Preserve offers quiet countryside walks of all lengths through forested hills and valleys surrounding sunlit pastoral fields. Thirty miles north of New York City, the property is the former Pocantico Hills and Rockwood Hall country estates of John D. Rockefeller family and William Rockefeller. Since 1983, the Rockefeller Family has generously donated over 1771 acres to the State of New York to safeguard these lands for present and future generations. Managed by New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, the Preserve is open to the public year-round, sunrise to sunset.

National Audubon Society

Birds are telling us—in their behavior, in their dwindling numbers, in their silence—that we must take action now, and that we must take action where birds need us most, from the Arctic to Chile and everywhere in between.

 We follow the science

Our science shows where birds go and what they need when they get there. We’re prepared to heed that call.

We pair advocacy and diplomacy to influence decision-makers

Audubon pairs diplomacy with advocacy to achieve conservation outcomes.

We inspire an expansive Audubon flock

Our chapters and centers are hubs that connect individuals and communities to Audubon and to action.

And, of course, we have birds

Birds delight and connect people across cultural, generational, and geographic boundaries. They inspire us to be better. And for 118 years, birds have been theheart and soul of Audubon.

A bright future for birds and the planet.
