With 4,315-acres, Ward Pound
Ridge Reservation is Westchester County's largest park. Its
varied terrain and landscapes and miles of wooded trails provide
a variety of activities in all seasons. There are areas for picnicking,
lean-to camping, fishing, cross-country skiing, and sledding.
The Trailside Nature Museum, founded in 1937, is one of the oldest
museums of its kind in the United States.
The Friends of Trailside
Museum and Ward Pound Ridge Reservation was organized in 1974
as a private, not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting
a better appreciation and understanding of the natural world
and the relationship between people and the land. It is always
seeking new members who care about the environment and the museum's
place in preserving the county's natural history.
