2:00 PM—5:30 PM


High Vista Nature Preserve—town of Scott, Cortland County


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 from May through November for FLLT nature preserve stewardship 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.

FLLT maintains a great trail system near the southern end of Skaneateles Lake which spans multiple preserves. Please join us to kick off the holiday weekend and help with a variety of trail maintenance tasks and maybe even some light carpentry. Tasks will include woody brush and shrub trimming, refreshing trail markers, and assisting FLLT staff with the removal of downed trees.


We will meet at the Vincent Hill Rd. trailhead.

From Rt. 41 south of Skaneateles, turn onto Vincent Hill Road West, just north of the Cortland/Onondaga County line. After about 1/3 mile, the road bends to the southwest and there is a small parking area on the right-hand side.
