This is a lovely spot off of Route 6 in Woodbury. You can have a picnic, take the dog, enjoy some trails and just be outside in clean air

Flanders is also a land trust with extensive nature sanctuaries for nature and wildlife observation and hiking. Top notch educational programs for youth and adults. Famous for their maple sugaring operation and demonstrations. Disclaimer: I co-chair their Photography Club and lead nature hikes.

Great summer camp that I used to attend when I was a kid. All of the volunteers worked hard and cared about the camp and teaching kids about the environment and different animal species. Overall, great experience and also very educational.
