The 62-acre marshland sanctuary at 6 ½ Station Road in Goshen was purchased by the Orange County Audubon Society in 1981 and is bounded on one side by the Heritage Trail.

Nearly 200 bird species of birds have been observed at 6 1/2 Station Road. The sanctuary has a nice mix of waterfowl and shorebirds, as well as swallows, warblers, flycatchers, sparrows, hawks, Marsh Wrens, and Virginia Rail and Sora (if you’re lucky).
