Rockefeller State Park Preserve is known for its wildlife, carriage trails, and scenic vistas. The park's 55 miles of trails allow visitors to view the various habitats of the 1,771-acre park, which include open meadows, dense forest, meandering brooks, wetlands, and the 24-acre Swan Lake. Rockefeller State Park Preserve abuts the Old Croton Aqueduct State Historic Park and Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.

Join New York State Parks Environmental Educator, Kim Fendrich, on a journey through time. We will learn about the geologic history of this area and observe evidence of tectonic activity, glaciation, weathering, and erosion throughout the Preserve. This program will feature demonstrations, a discussion, and a short hike to explore evidence of geological history along the Sleepy Hollow trail.
