Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve —town of West Danby
Charlie Smith and FLLT staff will lead participants on a moderate 3-mile hike on rolling terrain through the Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve. Charlie 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 should last about two hours. Be sure to wear sturdy shoes and bring binoculars if you have them.
Meet in the preserve parking lot. The Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve is located in West Danby, about 8 miles away from Ithaca. Take Rt. 13 south from Ithaca, then take Rt. 34/96 south to West Danby. Most of the preserve is located on the east side of the highway, across from Sylvan Drive and the West Danby Fire Station. Ample parking is available about 1/2 mile south of Sylvan Drive, on the east side of the road. Entrance to the parking lot is at the top of a hill, opposite a house and barn.
Except in the case of extreme weather, walks go rain or shine. Please check our Facebook page or this web page for updates.
