Wilton Wildlife Preserve & Park’s mission is to conserve ecological systems and natural settings while providing opportunities for environmental education and outdoor recreation.
With over twenty miles of hiking trails and year-round educational programs, the Preserve & Park is a local gem that has been serving the community for twenty years. Whether you are a nature lover, outdoors enthusiast, or lifelong learner, the Wilton Wildlife Preserve & Park is a place to enjoy and a cause worthy of your support.
Located in Saratoga County, New York, the Preserve & Park is part of the geologically significant Saratoga Sandplains. This area of ancient sand dunes, small but important wetlands and diverse ecological communities is home to the federally endangered Karner blue butterfly. This one-inch blue beauty is the catalyst behind the effort to conserve this increasingly rare landscape.
While working to ensure a future for the Karner blue butterfly and other imperiled species, the Wilton Wildlife Preserve & Park invites people of all ages to enjoy the protected lands, appreciate the area’s beauty, and value nature’s importance.
