(City of ) Rye Nature Center, Rye


One of the hotspots for spring migration, though the reason may be that it is heavily birded by top birders.

The City of Rye Nature Center is in Rye, at 873 Boston Post Road (U.S. Route 1). The center offers public and children's environmental education programs. There are 2.5 miles of trails through forty-seven acres of forest, field, pond, and stream habitats including a 14-station self-guided trail and a paved trail for elderly and handicapped people.

1. Take New England Truway, I-95 to exit 19, Playland Parkway.
2. Take the first quick exit off Playland Parkway. Turn left and go to the next T intersection.
3. Make a right onto Old Post Road. This road leads out to Route 1 ( 0.3 miles).
4. Make a sharp left onto Route 1 North. Take Route 1 (Boston Post Road) 0.7 miles to the entrance on the left. (Note: entrance is on a bend in the road, Drive with Caution)
