Natural habitats on theHuyck Preserve include several water falls, a 40.5 ha lake, 4 ha pond, beaver ponds, kilometers of permanent and intermittent streams, a bog (total wet areas = 5%), old fields (15%), mature hemlock forests, pine and spruce plantations (3%), and extensive areas of maturing and mature hardwood forests (72%).The remaining 5% are roads, trails and building sites.All of the Preserve?s 800 ha are available for research. Because the HPBRS is also a nature preserve, we do have about 2000 visitors per year. The Eldridge Research Center is a 6,000 square foot building that supports research and education. The Preserve has residential capacity for 32 people.
