10:00 AM—12:00 PM


Sims-Jennings Preserve at Cayuga Cliffs—town of Lansing, Tompkins County


Registration will open on Wednesday, August 14.


Join Finger Lakes Land Trust Director of Stewardship Chris Olney for a guided hike at the new Sims-Jennings Preserve at Cayuga Cliffs in Lansing. Learn about the various habitats and species found on the preserve, why protecting this land is important, and the improvements completed over the past year. The terrain and slopes are moderate, with an optional descent onto steeper terrain to a bluff above the lakeshore.

The hike distance will be 1.8 miles for the whole group, and an additional 0.4 miles for anyone who opts to go down to the lake bluff and back.


From Ithaca, take East Shore Drive for six miles to turn left on NY-34B N/Ridge Road (at the intersection at Rogue’s Harbor). After four miles, the preserve will be on the left.


Except in the case of extreme weather, events go rain or shine. Please check this web page for updates.
