NEXT OUTWalking Adventure:



Where: Edith G. Read Wildlife Sanctuary | 1 Playland Parkway, Rye, NY

Sunday | March 26, 2023 | 

Contact: Joe Nappi (he/him) at [email protected]

Join us as we explore the 127 acres of scenic Read Wildlife Sanctuary. We will hike approximately 4 miles and take in gorgeous views of the Long Island Sound. This is an easy hike and the trails are suitable for most skill levels. Please note that the entrance to the sanctuary is through the parking entrance to Rye Playland. Parking is free during the off season. We will be parking in the main parking lot to Playland right in front of the roller coaster that borders the back of the parking lot. From there we will walk to the sanctuary. 


  Please RSVP to Joe Nappi at [email protected] and also be sure to check out our Facebook page for pictures of our past outings.

*** All attendees are required to wear face masks for the duration of the walk and practice social distancing ***
