Here’s what’s happening in area real estate this week:

While you’re exploring new towns this weekend, take in a little nature (because the tree outside your apartment building just isn’t cutting it anymore…). Check out these great nature conservancies!

  •  The Arthur W. Butler Memorial Sanctuary in Bedford is just that: a peaceful sanctuary home to flowing streams, beautiful flora and fauna and plenty of local wildlife.
  • In Connecticut, Weston’s Devil’s Den is a go-to with lush protected forests, diverse species of plants and animals and stunning wetlands.
  • Once home to 20th century railroad heir Howard Gould, Sands Point Preserve in Port Washington is now come to a variety of habitats including a beach, cliffs, lawns, gardens and a freshwater pond.
  • Short Hills’ Hartshorn Arboretum & Sanctuary sprawls across more than 16 acres of woodlands including 3 miles of trails and a diverse plant and animal population.

Enjoy exploring!
