Amy's Park: A Winter Wonderland
As we and other visitors have discovered, in addition to providing a critical role in protecting Lake George's water quality, Amy's Park is also one of the area's greatest destinations to find wildlife, especially birds.
In winter, the secluded property is especially quiet, providing a glistening wonderland for the few who know about this hidden gem. Snow provides a canvas for animal tracks, evidence of the variety of creatures who live and thrive there. Recently, naturalists from Up Yonda Farm Environmental Education Center visited in advance of a guided snowshoe they will lead there February 16th (see events down below!) and found fox, coyote and quail tracks, and heard or saw barred owls, nuthatch and chickadees and woodpeckers. Otters, beavers, hawks, osprey, and herons all also call Amy's Park home.
