Native Animals at Lime Hollow

Lime Hollow is featured in NYS's Watchable Wildlife Sites for our rich diversity of habitats, boasting 200 species of birds and a variety of plants and other wildlife.

  • Eastern (Red-Spotted) NewtDuring the spring, visitors will hear spring peepers and wood frogs along the abandoned Lehigh Valley Railroad right-of-way.
  • The summer months offer the chance to watch big brown bats streaming out of a 1890s barn during their nighttime feeding routine.
  • On a crisp winter night, join a Lime Hollow naturalist on snowshoes and listen for great horned, barred and screech owls.

Visitors always have the opportunity to view year-round residents, such as pileated woodpeckers and red fox, and the lucky wanderer may catch a glimpse of the elusive fisher stalking along wooded trails.
