With origins dating back to 1963, Mohonk Preserve has long been a place of recreation, reflection, and restoration. Through the support of our members, donors, and partners, the Preserve has been a leading voice for conservation, speaking with passion and authority to safeguard the natural lands in the Shawangunks, the Hudson Valley, and beyond.

Today, Mohonk Preserve protects and manages in perpetuity over 7,500 acres of mountain ridges, forests, fields, streams, ponds, and other unique environments. As New York State’s largest nonprofit nature preserve, every year we welcome 150,000 visitors who come to rock climb, mountain bike, hike, ski, and study and enjoy nature.

Weddings and Events

The Mohonk Preserve offers a stunning, rustic setting for outdoor weddings and special events. Our Slingerland Pavilion, surrounded by sweeping, uninterrupted views of fields and mountains, is a unique, economical, “green” site for all your event needs.

At the Pavilion, you can celebrate any occasion, from a small, casual get-together to a formal party with 115 guests—wedding, anniversary, family reunion, corporate event, birthday party, memorial, company picnic, commitment ceremony, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and more.
