Description

Join Ryan Davis, Chesapeake Forests Program Coordinator for the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, for a tree identification at the Land Trust’s new Houghton Land Preserve in Corning. We can’t use leaves to identify trees for nearly half of the year, but winter is a lovely time to be in the woods. Learn how to identify trees in the winter, when there are no leaves and few other clues.  Please come prepared with appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and terrain.

Directions

From Rte 352/Denison Parkway in downtown Corning, turn south onto Chemung Street. Take Chemung Street to Spencer Hill Road and drive about 2 miles to the preserve entrance on your right.

Policies

Except in the case of extreme weather, walks go rain, sun or snow. Please check our Facebook page or this web page for updates. Please refrain from bringing dogs as they may impede the observation of wildlife.
