Stony Kill Farm EEC is a place to slow down, explore, and connect with hands-on experiences in nature and sustainable agriculture. Located in Dutchess County in southeastern New York State, the historic property includes over 1000 acres of farm and forest land and is host to a wide range of self-guided and directed outdoor education experiences for all ages.
Reminder: No pets (including animals on or off leashes, or horses) allowed on the property or trails, except trained service dogs and miniature horses helping their companion.
New York and federal law require service dogs to be allowed in public places, but this does not include emotional support animals. A service dog is trained to do tasks for a person with a disability and the tasks must be directly related to the person's disability. Emotional support animals provide comfort, companionship, and a sense of safety for their owners, but are not trained to perform specific tasks for their owners and are not considered service animals. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act and New York State law, public places are not required to allow emotional support animals. DEC regulations concerning the use of environmental education centers prohibit pets on center grounds except by written permission.
