For members only, this beautiful 165-acre sanctuary sits atop the Palisades, 350 feet above the Hudson. Though largely an oak forest, a wide variety of trees will be found here, as well as shrubs such as witch hazel, blueberry, spicebush, and others. Naturally, the changing seasons bring a wide range of flora, including colorful wildflowers, 20 species of ferns, and a variety of mushrooms. A 5-acre pond feeds the 250-foot Greenbrook Falls.

More than 230 species of birds have been spotted in this important migration stopover, and common mammals include the raccoon, red fox, striped skunk, squirrel, cotton-tail rabbit, to name a few.

This is the place for the nature lover. The membership requirement helps ensure the integrity of the land, and membership carries many benefits.

A full-time naturalist is on hand to conduct programs and answer questions, and a Group Walk through the sanctuary is certainly a pleasant and educational experience.
