About Amberations

Amberations is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting mental health through interaction with the natural environment.

With almost 50 acres, we are located on the western edge of Onondaga county in Marietta, New York.


At our barn site we offer opportunities to mingle with our goats, donkey, birds and kitties. There is easy access to a small stream, teaming with frogs, minnows, and salamanders. A lovely deck adorns one end of our barn. It’s a nice place to enjoy the sounds of nature and occasionally be visited by a Great Blue Heron. This is a wheelchair friendly area. 
The entrance to this area is a driveway shared with 2231 Amber Road, next to the Otisco Lake Community Center. Look for the small silhouette of Joe!

In our upper fields we have built wheelchair paths surrounding our gazebo and are always working on developing gardens.  There are also very nice trails through woods as well as through our songbird habitat. This is the best area for taking dogs and walking trails.  The entrance to this area is at 2345 Amber Road, up a long gravel driveway. Go left at the top to find the small parking area in the fields.

Our goal is to nurture relationships with the community we seek to serve. Opportunities abound for getting involved in many capacities. If you like nature, the outdoors, gardening, animals, or helping others, please consider giving us a call.

Info sessions will be offered at your convienience, for individuals or groups. Please call to schedule your personal tour and find out how you can get involved. Once you are familiar with our grounds they are here for your enjoyment.

    so we can just stop down to the barn anytime and see Big Joe and other animals? We saw them at last years fall festival and the kids have been asking to see him ever since

      Yes! Amberations is open everyday for people to enjoy. Big Joe is always looking for someone to come and say hello. There are two new ducklings that just hatched this week. We have also added a turkey, a pea hen and a guinea fowl.
