Steege Hill Nature Preserve—town of Big Flats
Registration is required and this trip is limited to 20 people. Please email email@example.com to register.
Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman will lead participants on a moderate 2.5/3-mile hike on the yellow trail through the Finger Lakes Land Trust’s 793-acre Steege Hill Nature Preserve. Jason 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.
