7:30 AM


High Vista Nature Preserve – town of Scott


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 on Land Trust properties during Spring Bird Quest. Please let us know if you would like to make a pledge per bird species found and we will let you know the total count once the numbers are in.  Contact us at info@fllt.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.


Join us for a walk led by experienced birder Mark Chao high above the eastern shore of Skaneateles Lake at this diverse hillside forest full of songbirds. Bring binoculars if you have them.  Beginning birders welcome!  Mark will lead a second birding trip staring at 9:30 AM at the Hinchcliff Family Preserve. See the full list of Spring Bird Quest events on Memorial Day weekend.


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.


Except in the case of extreme weather, walks go rain, sun or snow. Please check our Facebook page or this web page for updates.

Please refrain from bringing dogs as they may impede the observation of wildlife.
