A quiet wood disguises a narrow, hidden path along the edge of Bozen Kill, with spectacular views of three waterfalls along its length. When The Nature Conservancy acquired this property from the Christman family in 1970, the family had long since transformed the land into a nature sanctuary. Will Christman, born on this farm in 1865, began feeding birds in winter in 1888, using the grass and weed seeds he and his wife would find on their property. An award-winning poet in his own right, Christman corresponded with Walt Whitman and Robert Frost, even bringing Frost and his wife to this farm as his guests.
