Leeds Pond Preserve

This hilly, 35-acre preserve overlooks Manhasset Bay, with the Victorian mansion on the property serving as home for the Science Museum of Long Island. Nature trails traverse a wooded valley with majestic tulip trees and oaks, while a stream flows through a wetland into Leeds Pond. The museum is a nonprofit organization devoted to teaching children about the range of sciences through a variety of programs.
