Site History

The Siegel-Kline Kill Conservation Area is named after prior owners Bob and Susan Siegel.  The property was originally party of an extensive dairy farm operation.  The fields of Siegel-Kline Kill, with 25 acres of excellent agricultural soils, are transitioning to a native meadow habitat. Fishing at the site is by permit only (visit the CLC Office at 49 Main Street in Chatham to get yours).

If you’d like to know more about the site, you can download our informational brochure, or read the site’s Master Plan.
