The service will start Saturday, May 28 and run through Saturday, September 24.

Albany Pine Bush Preserve Meet and Greet

The Nature Bus will be visiting the Albany Pine Bush Preserve at 6 Mile Waterworks at 135 Fuller Road  twice a month for the entire summer.
After stepping off the bus, visitors will be met by Albany Pine Bush Preserve staff and dedicated volunteers ready to answer questions about the globally rare, nationally significant and locally distinct ecosystem that they will encounter. Staff and volunteers will be present at 6 Mile Waterworks to provide visitors with everything from trail maps and tick removal guides, to stickers and coloring sheets for kids.
