WLT is excited to be a part of this fantastic celebration. The Hilltop Hanover Quest is an outdoor exploration that combines a treasure hunt with fun fact finding related to the farm’s unique geography that supports varied climates.

At Reskill Westchester, families will learn about the wonderful lost arts, including workshops and demos on: knitting and sewing, knife sharpening, keeping chickens and bees, making bread and cheese, canning and preserving, gardening, not trees and sprouting, herbs and herbal remedies, composting and rainwater harvesting, woodworking and DIY, alternate energies and so much more. Also featuring: Kids Farm Crafts, music, food, artisan craft village, and farmers market!

WLT has five Quests on its preserves to engage visitors in using their creativity and skills in navigation, listening, and observation. WLT’s other Quests are at the Frederick P. Rose Preserve, Cross River; Westchester Wilderness Walk, Zofnass Family Preserve, Pound Ridge; John Jay Homestead, Katonah; and Bedford Audubon’s Bylane Farm, Katonah.

We have Quests at:

the Frederick P. Rose Preserve, in Cross River.

Westchester Wilderness Walk, in Pound Ridge. This Quest was completed with the support of a Land Trust Alliance New York Conservation Partnership grant. Download the Quest booklet here.

Bedford Audubon’s Hunt-Parker Sanctuary. The creation of this Quest was generously sponsored by Jennifer and Roger Schwartz through the Louis and Anne Abrons Foundation.  Download the Quest booklet here.

John Jay Homestead in Bedford. This Quest features the rich history of the John Jay Homestead and introduces questers to the natural and cultural feaures of the property that makes it so special. This Quest was installed by Weschester Favors, a volunteer “club” for families who want to engage, involve, and educate their children in the concept of  “doing good” in conjunction with WLT staff.

Hunter Brook Preserve was donated to Westchester Land Trust in 2000 and the trail system was developed by Wilder-Balter Partners, the developer of the adjacent subdivision. Download the Quest booklet here.
