Pruyn Sanctuary is the headquarters of Saw Mill River Audubon. Located in the Town of New Castle on Route 133-Millwood Road, three miles east of Millwood, Pruyn Sanctuary protects 92-acres of open space and offers over two-miles of hiking trails through diverse habitats including a system of boardwalks through Gedney Swamp.

Gedney Swamp is a 57-acre state-designated wetland protected by Pruyn Sanctuary. Pruyn Sanctuary drains to the New Croton Reservoir. As dedicated open space, Pruyn Sanctuary also protects the drinking water quality of the New York City watershed.

One of the most popular sanctuary features is a small butterfly and hummingbird garden, open to the public.
Trail maps are located on their website.
