Take a Virtual Hike with Master Gardener Volunteers

Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteers present their first virtual guided hike! While we cancelled our planned in-person hike early in the year due to the pandemic, Master Gardener Volunteers filmed and narrated a hike of Putnam County’s Fred Dill Wildlife Sanctuary. These walking trails are right in the heart of Carmel, NY and easy to access. In this short video, Master Gardener Volunteers introduce you to local history, natural resources, and the invasive plants that threaten those resources.

You’ll see where to park and find the trailhead, learn about the man for whom the park is named, and enjoy the beauty of Putnam County’s forests. We welcome you to enjoy this curated hike experience.

Community and government partners include the Putnam County Soil & Water Conservation District, Parks Department, County Historian, and the Putnam History Museum.
