Mission Statement

In 1980, the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary, Inc.,
was formed to further natural history, conservation, artistic and
cultural education and to serve the people as an agency for
popular enlightenment, cultural improvement and scientific progress, recognizing through its programs the essential relationship
among the natural, artistic and historic elements of the area.

Description

The Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary offers nature trails for observing indigenous wildlife and waterfowl within its 600 acres. The Dorflinger Glass Museum on the grounds is located in part in the former home of Christian Dorflinger, whose famous glass factories produced fine crystal for presidents, kings and the public between 1852 and 1921. Visitors enjoy more than 900 pieces of fine cut, etched, engraved, gilded and enameled crystal, the largest public display of Dorflinger's crystal in the world. On Saturday evenings from the end of June to mid-August, the Wildflower Music Festival concerts are held in a natural amplitheater. The Sanctuary also maintains several historic buildings in the village of White Mills, once home to the workers in the glass factories. The 1867 Glassworker's Cottage and the 1911 White Mills Fire House are open to the public at selected dates during the season. Scheduled to open in June, 2008, is the White Mills Heritage Trail, connecting the fire house and the worker's cottage with an interpretive nature trail.
