The Papscanee Island Nature Preserve

  • The Papscanee Island Nature Preserve is located on the Hudson River in the towns of East Greenbush and Schodack just east of Rte 9J.
  • The Preserve is owned by the Open Space Institute and managed by the Rensselaer County Legislature through the County’s Environmental Management Council.
  • The Preserve contains about seven miles of trails. The area can be used for environmental education, picnicking hiking and cross-country skiing. Although it is not Town owned, the Preserve is a natural and historic treasure to the East Greenbush residents.
