Site Features

Marie's Woods is a mixed woodland with predominantly cottonwood, elm, maple, beech, hemlock, and basswood trees, which makes it a haven for woodpeckers and flickers.  The property contains approximately 15 acres of scattered wetlands, that are teeming with frogs and other amphibians.  The undergrowth at Marie's Woods has many different kinds of ferns and wildflowers, making it a beautiful destination for hikers who are interested in observing some of the diverse flora of New York.
