At the heart of the Winnakee’s mission is a deep regard for the
and natural beauty of northern Dutchess County. Winnakee not only
and natural habitats from development, but provides public
through its two parks--Burger Hill in Rhinebeck and Winnakee
Nature Preserve in Hyde Park.
We also have established miles of public access trails and
are continually working to add to those.
We host several educational and
volunteer events a year and love to
bring our communities together to
enjoy the landscape we share.
