Guided Hike and Picnic at Wesley Hill Nature Preserve

Wesley Hill Nature Preserve—town of Richmond


Please email to let us know you’re coming!


Executive Director Andy Zepp will lead participants on a hike through the 390-acre Wesley Hill Nature Preserve, home to the immense Briggs Gully, one of the largest gorges in our region. Diverse stands of mature forest—including about 10 acres of old-growth—a wide array of wildflowers, and sweeping views of the hills surrounding Honeoye Lake’s southern end make this preserve truly special. Andy will discuss the history of the preserve and the Land Trust’s role in acquiring it, as well as its flora and fauna. The hike will last approximately one hour and will be followed by an informal barbecue. The Land Trust will bring burgers, veggie burgers, and beverages. Attendees are encouraged to bring a side dish or salad to share.
