Organization description: 

Huyck Preserve and Biological Research Station is a 501(c) non-profit organization, funded through grants and the support of its members. Founded in 1931, Huyck Preserve has been connecting people to nature for over 80 years; a long, rich history as part of Rensselaerville and as one of the oldest biological research stations in the United States.


Organization Mission and Goals:

  • To protect the natural beauty of the Rensselaerville Falls, the watershed of Lake Myosotis, and surrounding lands 

  • To conduct long-term research on natural systems as part of a global effort to understand and preserve the Earth's biodiversity

  • To increase appreciation of this effort through innovative, field-based educational programs for students, teachers, and the community


Phenology Project Description:
The phenology trail is currently monitored by Huyck Preserve staff. It is our hope that this data will help to identify shifts in the plant life cycle timing due to climate change. The data is submitted to the National Phenology Network.
