Bock-Harvey Forest Preserve – town of Enfield
None required — free and open to the public. The walks are free but donations are heartily welcomed. We will be keeping a tally of bird species found. Please let us know if you would like to make a pledge per species and we will let you know the total count once the numbers are in. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (607) 275-9487. General donations are welcome too. Gifts can be made online – please click the box that says “This gift is in honor or memory of someone” and type in: Spring Bird Quest.
This preserve, owned by the Finger Lakes Trail Conference, features forests, a large meadow, and a grove of old-growth maple trees, thought to be 300 years old. Bring binoculars if you have them. Beginning birders welcome! This event will be held rain or shine. Learn more about Spring Bird Quest.
The Bock-Harvey Forest Preserve is located near the intersection of Porter Hill Road and Rockwell Road in the town of Enfield. From downtown Ithaca, take Route 13 south, then turn onto Route 327 toward Robert H. Treman State Park. After 3.5 miles, turn left onto Hines Road, then take the first right onto Rockwell Road. The parking area for the Bock-Harvey Forest Preserve, prominently marked with a sign, is on the south side of Rockwell Road.
Except in the case of extreme weather, walks go rain or shine. Please check our Facebook page or this web page for updates.
Please refrain from bringing dogs as they may impede the observation of wildlife.
