True to its name, Uplands Farm Sanctuary retains the appearance of an old dairy farm, complete with a silo and open fields that were once cattle pastures. Today, the old farm buildings serve as an office for The Nature Conservancy's Long Island Chapter. A double-loop trail meanders from bird and butterfly meadows, through deciduous forests, and into a ravine shaded by white pine.
