Hartland Grassland: This
area is bounded on the west by Hartland Road, on the north by Ridge Road (Route 104), on
the east by Robson Road, and on the south by the Erie Canal. It is a large area of
fairly un-fragmented grassland habitat (hay, pasture, and successional old field
communities) that was previously a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
(DEC) focus area for grassland management, especially for the ring-necked pheasant.
It is a good area for observing hawks, owls, and grassland songbirds (e.g., northern
shrike in winter months, bobolink, eastern meadowland, and Savannah sparrow).
