2:00 PM—5:30 PM


Steege Hill Nature Preserve—town of Big Flats


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


Join staff and volunteers on the first Friday of every month for nature preserve management activities and socializing. If you are looking for a good reason to take off a half day on a Friday, this is it! Work sessions will be held from 2:00-4:30 pm, followed by a social hour from 4:30-5:30. Tools, work gloves, light refreshments and snacks will be provided.

Steege Hill is our largest and most ecologically unique nature preserve. Please join us to help reroute a muddy section of the white trail to help prevent erosion.  The initial trail ascent is rather steep, but we will be working our way slowly up the hill where we will be rewarded with snacks and cold refreshments!


From route 17 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., cross the river, and turn left on Steege Hill Rd. Go about 1 mile and pull into the parking lot on the left, just before the pipeline cut.
