Go Exploring at Rum Hill!


Rum Hill is a 302-acre site with Appalachian and Northern hardwoods on xeric sites. It also encompasses one of the highest elevations in Otsego County at over 2100 ft.

At Rum Hill, students explore beaver ponds and walk through old fields and early homesteads learning of man's impact on neighbors and the environment.
