Bat Event Reopens Trailside Museums and Zoo in New York
It has been almost two months since the July 9th storm that ripped through the Hudson Valley and took down some of our favorite attractions in the Bear Mountain area of Orange County, New York. Hard to believe that we went all summer without being able to go to Bear Mountain State Park or the Trailside Museums and Zoo at Bear Mountain.
When the July 9th storm hit, it took out multiple area highways and roads. It also apparently did damage to the Trailside Museums and Zoo. Fortunately, the animals were all ok but one update from the Zoo included the mention of water issues being a reason they had to be closed to the public.
The Bear Mountain Zoo Has Re-Opened for the Fall in Orange County, New York
The Good news is that as of September 1, 2023, the Trailside Museums and Zoo at Bear Mountain State Park are back open to the public. As a matter of fact, they held their first public event on September 1. If you don't get a chance to visit over the holiday weekend maybe put next Friday on your calendar.
