Hallett Nature Sanctuary

Hallett Nature Sanctuary

Hallett Nature Sanctuary, by Mario Burger

Hallett Nature Sanctuary is a four-acre nature preserve that is located just northwest of the Pond at 5th Avenue and Central Park South.

Restored in the 1980's, Hallett Nature Sanctuary was first declared a bird sanctuary in 1934, and has remained so ever since. There are in fact many different animal species in addition to the Santuary’s bird population, including raccoons, rabbits, and woodchucks.

Visitors may not be allowed in the Sanctuary by themselves, but half-hour guided tours are held at certain times throughout the year. These tours educate visitors about the various types of wildlife that inhabit the preserve, including the large number of migratory birds that frequent the Sanctuary.
