Mianus River Gorge: Walking Tour of the Levene Property

Take a walking tour of the Levene Property Sunday, Oct. 4, from 1-3 p.m., meet at the parking lot at Mianus River Gorge (across the street from 167 Mianus River Rd.)

Last December, with the help and support of friends, neighbors, and the Town of North Castle, Mianus River Gorge purchased the 73-acre Levene property, deemed critical to the protection of the Mianus River Watershed.

Mianus River Gorge Executive Director Rod Christie invites the public on a walking tour of this important acquisition. Protecting the Levene property is important for the community and for the environment as a corridor for wildlife, a link to Gorge lands from both north-south and east-west, and to protect the area’s drinking water supply.

The property features ridgetop vistas, spectacular glacial erratic boulders, Piping Brook, and important wetlands. You’ll see evidence of Native American and colonial occupation that tells the history of this property as well as other unique ecological features that make this land an important addition to the Mianus River Gorge Preserve.

The property is made up of lowland wetlands and hardwood forests, “high-and-dry” ridgeline habitats, and rocky steep slopes. The walking tour provides a unique glimpse into this property that presently is only open by private tour.

Mianus River Gorge, located in Bedford, N.Y., works to protect and promote appreciation of the natural heritage of the Mianus River watershed through land acquisition, conservation science, research, and education throughout the region.
