Here is the beginnings of one of the trial heads into Fern Tor. Today, Fern Tor is a 12 or 13-acre nature preserve on the North end of Campus that stretches from the St. Ann’s parking lot to Quiet Cove Park in Poughkeepsie and encompasses the land between the Hudson River and Route Nine. At this point, Fern Tor is an arboretum used by a few faculty members and students as a place of relaxation and hands-on learning. Many professors from different schools within the college have taken their classes out into the preserve featuring assignments from becoming inspired for a creative writing price to researching environmental issues.
