Nature Preserve

Open year-round to the public for hiking, biking, snowshoeing and XC skiing, the Joseph A. Blake Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect place to visit with kids.

The sanctuary is forever protected by THTLT, and free public programs are offered year-round for everyone to explore and learn about nature.

Thanks to a donation by the North Country Bird Club, we were able to acquire this property and expand the trail system to continue providing important wildlife habitat for beaver, fox, and songbirds.

We are constantly working to improve access and expand the trail system and host monthly programs free and open to the public.

We are always looking for help keeping the trails maintained. If interested, let us know.

Why I Care

Dream come true

For me, this is more than my homestead, this is a wildlife preserve…one of the last places of its kind and that’s why it needs to be protected. Partnering with Tug Hill Tomorrow made this dream come true.
