Haas Sanctuary

Borders Sheather Road and Tripp Street
Mount Kisco, NY 10549

Haas Sanctuary is located on the eastern edge of the Town of New Castle south of Mount Kisco. Haas Sanctuary was first protected by the New Castle Land Conservancy which merged with Saw Mill River Audubon in 1975.

In 2007, Haas Sanctuary doubled in size from seven acres to over 14 acres with a generous gift of land from the Betts Family, formerly of Chappaqua. Highlights of Haas Sanctuary are the beautiful rock formations, large tulip and sugar maple trees, and a native meadow along Sheather Road.

Please remember that a sanctuary is where all life is respected. Please do not injure or remove any animals or plants from our sanctuaries.

Dogs are permitted on leashes. Please do pick up after your dog.

Please also remember that all of our sanctuaries are closed to visitors between dusk and dawn. We are grateful for the continuing care of our sanctuary neighbors and volunteer TrailWalkers in protecting these special habitats.

For protection of the wildlife and habitat and the enjoyment and safety of our visitors, camping, fires, biking, hunting and motorized vehicles are not permitted in any of our sanctuaries.
