Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County (CCE) is hosting a hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA) awareness and monitoring hike on February 16 from 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM at the High Vista Nature Preserve. Anyone who appreciates hemlock trees can learn how to identify hemlock trees and look for signs of HWA. Winter is the ideal time to see the insect. Snowshoes or cross-country skis may be needed in case of deep snow. More info.
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. The preserve is on both the east (left) and west (right) sides of the road.
