Nature Quest at Borden's Pond

Location Trip Time Travel Type
New York 1 hour


The Columbia Land Conservancy (CLC) welcomes you to Nature Quest at Borden’s Pond Conservation Area located in Chatham, NY. Named for the pond created by Borden's Milk Company in the early twentieth century, this 62-acre site has 1.5 miles of trails that take you through mixed deciduous forest, a wetland where the old pond once stood, and past meandering streams. During this quest, you'll head north from the parking area up the Streamside Trail through the forest. Take your time and have fun! This audio tour is designed to be enjoyed at your own pace. The theme of this Nature Quest tour is woodland critters. It is with gratitude and humility that we acknowledge Public Conservation Areas are located on the ancestral homelands of the Mohican people, who are the Indigenous peoples of this land. Despite tremendous hardship in being forced from here, today their community resides in Wisconsin and is known as the Stockbridge-Munsee Community. This land is near the homelands of other Indigenous peoples and First Nations, including the Schaghticoke First Nations. Indigenous peoples continue efforts to reclaim and steward the land today. We pay honor and respect to their ancestors past and present as we commit to building a more inclusive and equitable space for all.
