Ooms Conservation Area at Sutherland Pond – Main Parking Area – 480 Rock City Rd, Chatham

An ancient fish, native to the Hudson but today rare and protected, lends the name to this month’s full moon because Native tribes caught sturgeon in abundance in August.
By popular demand, we are adding a Snapping Turtle program by wetland biologist Casey Tompkins to this walk. He hopes to catch a live turtle! You can come for both, or only one or the other.
