10:00 AM – 12:30 PM


Houghton Land Preserve—town of Corning, Steuben County


Please RSVP with Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman by emailing jasongorman@fllt.org or calling 607-275-9487.


Help is needed to clear limbs, branches, and trees from along the edge of the meadow in an effort to maximize nesting bird habitat. Land Trust staff will use a chainsaw to cut up large trees and branches. Tools and work gloves will be provided.

Please note the following:

  • The site is gently sloping and the ground is uneven in places. A short hike is required to access the site.
  • Sturdy hiking shoes or boots and long pants are required. We will be hauling brush through tall grasses and other plants.
