Ellis Hollow Nature Preserve – Town of Dryden
None required — free and open to the public. The walks are free but donations are heartily welcomed. We will be keeping a tally of bird species found on Land Trust properties throughout the month. Please let us know if you would like to make a pledge per bird species found and we will let you know the total count once the numbers are in. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (607) 275-9487. General donations are welcome too. Gifts can be made online – please click the box that says “This gift is in honor or memory of someone” and type in: Spring Bird Quest.
Join us on the last bird quest at this majestic fern-carpeted forest, home to diverse plant and wildlife species located just minutes from downtown Ithaca. Bring binoculars if you have them. Beginning birders welcome! Learn more about Spring Bird Quest here.
