Alt Reservation is a patchwork of former pastures that have been allowed to grow since the early 1900s. Greenbelt currently manages the property to enhance wildlife populations and provide visitors with a peaceful place to walk among the white pines that thrive in its soil.
Flora & Fauna
A relic white cedar swamp, known as Beaver Pond, is located at the southern edge of Alt Woodland. These globally threatened ecosystems are native only to a very narrow strip on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. Here you will see a variety of plants and animals, including blueberry bushes, sweet azalea, spotted turtles, and sharp-shinned hawks.
Greenbelt is grateful to several professional and staff photographers whose work is featured prominently within our website.
