Sheldrake Environmental Center is THE place
for education, relaxation and a connection with nature
Spark a lifelong love of, and respect for, nature
Our environmental education programs enhance the science curriculums of public, parochial and private schools in our community. With trained environmental educators as their guide, students learn about the natural world by visiting any one of three local sites and discussing the event in class with a Sheldrake naturalist.
Rest, relax, rejuvenate
The Larchmont Reservoir – James G. Johnson, Jr. Conservancy is a 60-acre oasis of land and water that provides a sanctuary for wildlife and people. Birdwatchers, hikers, dog walkers, families and friends stroll or hike through the bucolic landscape on trails that follow the Sheldrake River as it winds through woods to the Larchmont Reservoir.
Enjoy the quiet beauty of the property
At Sheldrake we strive to maintain the sense of refuge present here. The trails are open every day from dawn until dusk. When you join us and savor the delights of nature, you become more aware of our responsibilities as stewards of these natural resources.
