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.
Join us for a walk led by experienced birder Mark Chao at this hilltop preserve featuring a wonderful mosaic of woodlands, meadows, wetlands, ponds, and watercourses. This walk may involve some limited steep climbs. Bring binoculars if you have them. Beginning birders welcome! See the full list of Spring Bird Quest events on Memorial Day weekend.
From Ithaca, take Rt. 96B south towards Danby and drive approximately 18 miles to Candor. At the first gas station in Candor, turn right on Mill St., cross the creek, and turn left at the T intersection onto Rt. 96 – Main St. After passing Candor Central School on the left, turn left into the United Health Services parking lot at 54 Main St. Land Trust volunteers will determine, based on the number of attendees, if a carpool to the preserve is necessary. The parking area of the preserve cannot accommodate more than ten cars.
