2016 marks the 15th anniversary of the Steege Hill Nature Preserve, the Land Trust’s largest conservation area. Join us for a celebratory hike led by Senior Field Representative Kris West. Steege Hill offers a safe refuge at this time of year, as no hunting is allowed here. We’ll set out among the fall foliage in search of the birds, plants and other animals that inhabit this diverse 793-acre preserve.
From route 17/86 in Big Flats, take exit 49. Turn south from the exit ramp and go to Olcott Rd. At T intersection, turn right on Rt. 64 (unmarked), and right again on Rt. 352. Turn left on So. Corning Rd., then turn left into the DEC Fishing Access site, aka Bottchers Landing, just before the bridge which goes over the river. Parking is limited at the preserve. Carpooling from this site is needed to accommodate all attendees.
