Putnam Highlands Audubon Society will offer a hike through Reese Sanctuary in New Hamburg on Oct. 4, beginning at 9 a.m. There will be an opportunity to look for birds and other wildlife. It is a moderately easy hike along Wappinger Creek, and families are welcome.
To reach the sanctuary, take Route 9 to Route 28 (Old Hopewell Road) west toward 9D. At the fuchsia-colored building continue on New Hamburg Road, crossing over Wappinger Creek. At the four-way intersection, take a right and then on your right, pull into the town park. At the back of the park you will see a sign for the sanctuary.
