Hinchcliff Family Preserve—town of Spafford, Onondaga County
Please RSVP with Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 607-275-9487.
Help is needed to construct a footbridge on the trail that connects the Hinchcliff Family Preserve and Central New York Land Trust’s Ripley Hill Nature Preserve. This footbridge will be built on FLLT land and will require hauling lumber for a short distance. FLLT will provide impact drivers, tools, hardware, and work gloves, but if you have a favorite cordless impact driver or drill, please feel free to bring it with you.
Please wear sturdy shoes, or hiking boots. Water and light refreshments will be provided.
From Skaneateles, take Route 41 south for 14 miles, then turn right onto Covey Road. The preserve’s parking lot lies at the end of the road. From Ithaca or Cortland, take Route 13 north to Route 281 north, then take a left onto Route 41 north in Homer. Stay on Route 41 north for about 11 miles, then take a left onto Covey Road to the preserve.
