Marshlands Conservancy is a 147-acre wildlife sanctuary composed of diverse habitats. Forest, meadow, salt marsh and shore can be explored and appreciated here. There are three miles of trails and one-half mile of shoreline along the Long Island Sound.

Located along the Atlantic migratory flyway, Marshlands is an excellent birdwatching location. More than 230 species have been sighted. The Marshlands salt marsh is one of few in New York accessible to the public for study and enjoyment.

The county's nature centers provide undisturbed habitat for wildlife and a peaceful oasis for people to explore and learn about their natural environment. The Department of Parks, Recreation and Conservation relies on the cooperation of all visitors to maintain the special character of its nature preserves as refuges for wildlife and as a place for people to experience the natural heritage of Westchester in as undisturbed a state as possible.
