I haven't been there in the past year, but have visited there numerous times with no problems from anyone.

No, though I have usually accessed the preserve from the trail behind the bank.  The only people I run into there are DEC folks, dog walkers, and Rich Guthrie.

We, the birding community and the general public, are entitled to unfettered access to the Coxsackie Creek Grasslands Preserve which is at the cul-de-sac end of Houghtaling Road in New Baltimore/Coxsackie, The Greene County. .

I was told by a security guard that I was on private property and had to leave.

Of course, he was wrong.

We are going to pursue this to clear up this bit of misinformation. 

My question is: While attempting to visit the preserve have you ever been approached by security and told to leave? .

I think it was a one time incident by a temp. guard (it was 4th of July holiday afterall).

I just want to see if any others had run into this problem.

Rest assured, you may visit the preserve anytime,
