Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve – town of West Danby
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 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, located just 8 miles from downtown Ithaca features forests, fields, a lake, and a diversity of habitats for birds and other wildlife. Bring binoculars if you have them. Beginning birders welcome! See the full list of Spring Bird Quest events on Memorial Day weekend.

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