Duck Pond Update - DEC has completed their assessment of Duck Pond's infrastructure and the Preserve is working with engineers to develop a plan for repairs. Due to fluctuating water levels, the pond is especially dangerous - please stay off of the pond surface and, as always, be sure to keep all dogs on leash.
Drones and other Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) - Please remember that Mohonk Preserve prohibits the use of drones and other unmanned aerial systems (UAS) on or above Preserve lands unless such use is approved through our permit application process. This policy supports our commitment to the protection of all wildlife (specifically in this context, birds of all species), and the safety and well-being of our visitors, as well as the quality of their personal experiences in nature. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, any and all use of drones for purposes such as aerial photography, videography and entertainment/recreational use. For more information, click here.
