10:00 AM


Bishop Nature Preserve—town of Fayette


No registration required.


Director of Stewardship Chris Olney and Major Gifts Officer Kurt Anderson will lead participants on a 4.4 mile out-and-back walk through the preserve and onto the connecting Cayuga-Senecal Canal Trail. This low-lying preserve adjoins state land, and serves as an access point for the trail which runs for several miles along the canal that connects Cayuga and Seneca Lakes. The terrain is flat and does not involve any climbs. Chris and Kurt will discuss the history of the preserve and the Land Trust’s role in acquiring it as well as its flora and fauna.


From Geneva, go east on route 5 & 20. Turn south (right) onto route 96A. Cross the bridge over the canal, and make the first left, on West River Rd. Park opposite house #536.


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