Staghorn Cliffs Preserve—town of Spafford, Onondaga County


Please RSVP with Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman, by emailing or calling 607-275-9487.


“Staghorn Cliffs” is one of the Land Trust’s newest preserves. The property is adjacent to the Cora Kampfe Dickinson Conservation Area and boasts a wonderful gorge and large waterfall, as well as a mix of mature and young woods. Please join us for a sneak peek of the property and to clean up some leftover scrap metal and junk.  Any proceeds from the scrap metal will be directly donated to the Land Trust.

A work session will be held from 2:00-4:30 pm, followed by a social hour from 4:30-5:30 – light refreshments and snacks will be provided!  Please wear sturdy footwear, and clothes that you do not mind getting dirty.  We will provide tools and work gloves, but feel free to bring your own if you have a favorite pair.
