Witness the magic of spring with the Albany Pine Bush Preserve's 17th annual Lupine Fest. Fields of violet Lupine flowers and fluttering Karner blue butterflies set the stage for visitors to explore and support the Albany Pine Bush Preserve and its partners through online interactive programs and limited in-person activities. Website visitors can access online resources to enjoy solitary nature walks, hands-on activities with community partners, music, games, crafts and more!

We’ll be parked at each of our 12 trailheads with our trunks open – but instead of barbequing, we’ll be dishing out informational materials and answering your questions before you head out on the trails! All Covid precautions, including masks and social distancing, in effect.
