A primary purpose of the Huyck Preserve is to protect the Ten-Mile Creek watershed, providing an undeveloped area for scientific research, environmental education, and recreation. Huyck Preserve protects over 2000 acres of wetland and forest habitats throughout the watershed of Ten-Mile creek and Lake Myosotis.
Huyck Preserve has ongoing research efforts as part of our conservation goals. As a founding member of the Ecological Monitoring and Management Alliance (EMMA) the Preserve is evaluating the impact of white tailed deer overabundance on the Preserve's forests and evaluating the phenology of native tree species.
The Species Lists provide common and scientific names for many of the plant and animal species observed in the Preserve. If you see something not on the lists, please let us know!
Citizen Science efforts at the Preserve work to bring citizens into contact with scientists and collect data that will help us conserve and understand the habitats and ecosystems we are protecting. Citizen Science is a great way to get evolved, meet scientists, get up close with nature, and help collect data that makes a difference.
