Rhinoceros Creek Reservation remain open for you, attendance is booming, & we need volunteers for trails and gardens.
If you've been out on the trails, you know how vital open spaces are – to get a breath of fresh air, some exercise, and a bit of mental relaxation. But we cannot keep the trails and gardens in shape without your help.
Please take the next step and become a volunteer by clicking on this link. Somers Land Trust is a small group of volunteers. We need your help to ensure that these green spaces will be here for you, your children, and our community for the long term.
While enjoying a hike, please make sure you and your family stay safe by following CDC and New York State guidelines. Don't forget to bring your masks in case you unexpectedly find yourself in a situation where you cannot maintain a safe distance.
A reminder: these are Carry-In, Carry-Out locations so please do NOT drop used masks and gloves in parking lots or on the trails! Dogs are not allowed in either location. Dogs disturb other hikers and wildlife and some owners have not been cleaning up after them. We appreciate your understanding and consideration.
Be kind. Be well. Be Somers Strong.
Thanks to the NYS grant that enabled us to build the pavilion on the pond at Rhinoceros Creek Reservation, it is no longer difficult to find the entrance off Route 202 for the southern parcel. In addition to the address sign, an interior sign graced by our namesake rhinoceros lists reservation regulations, while smaller signs demarcate the northeastern RCR parcel.
When you gotta go, but you just don't want to leave...
Help Somers Land Trust purchase and install an environmentally safe, waterless, odorless toilet at Rhinoceros Creek Reservation.
This state-of-the-art toilet is the same as the two we installed at Angle Fly Preserve where they have served the community with a minimum of maintenance for years.
Our initial goal of $10,000 represents a significant downpayment on this essential amenity.
The new trail at Rhinoceros Creek is shaping up – thanks to intrepid volunteers who worked through the winter. And the pavilion with its beautiful new stone patio overlooking the pond is just the spot to relax after a hike. But isn't there one more thing needed to complete this picture? We think so – a permanent composting toilet is the perfect addition to enhance your enjoyment of Somers' newest green space.
The wonderful thing about supporting the Somers Land Trust is that everything you give stays in the community we all treasure.
