Nature Night Out 2022

The Albany Pine Bush Preserve presents "Nature Night Out", a series of three summer evening events that invite everyone to drop everything and get into nature.

The Albany Pine Bush Discovery Center will extend operations until 7:30pm on each of these days, capitalizing on those longer sunlit summer hours. Visitors of all ages can enjoy live music while feasting on a meal from food truck vendors, go on a StoryWalk adventure along the trail and learn about the natural & cultural history of the Pine Bush with interactive Discovery Center exhibits. A fun evening out in nature awaits at 195 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205 on Wednesday June 29th, Friday July 22nd and Friday August 12th.

“There is nothing like the magic of a summer evening…being out at dusk with friends and family, enjoying each other and enjoying nature,” said Beth MacCallum, Outreach & Volunteer Coordinator. “I can't imagine a better way to spend an evening in June than sharing a meal with my family that I didn't have to prepare -thank you food trucks, all while enjoying the beauty of the Pine Bush and some live music.”

Christopher Hawver, Executive Director of the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission said, “Nature Night Out has been in the works for quite some time. As a staff we see the immense enjoyment and use of preserve trails that is evidenced by full parking lots starting at 4 pm on summer evenings. Our team thought it would be a natural progression to create a relaxing atmosphere with live music, seating, and food trucks and marry that with an already engaged audience. Come on out and enjoy!”
