Laurel Hill Preserve
Westtown, NY

is comprised of 89 acres of varied habitat – woodland, alfalfa field, wetlands, vernal pools and the Tunkamoes Creek, which creates niches for a great variety of plant and animal species. In addition to protecting the Wallkill watershed and the biologically diverse habitats, this preserve will provide wonderful access to nature in the western part of our county. It is the site of our very popular Vernal Pool Exploration, when people of all ages gather with buckets and nets to reveal the first signs of Spring. Trails maintained by Land Trust volunteers meander through the woodlands, leading to the Tunkamoes Creek.
