Steege Hill Nature Preserve—town of Big Flats, Chemung County
Please RSVP with Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 607-275-9487.
Please join us to cut back overgrowth and brush on old hiking trail that was the original entrance to the preserve. Work gloves and hand tools will be provided.
Please note the following:
- We will be meeting in the new parking area and hiking .6 miles to the old access lane. We will work from the top down.
- Please wear sturdy hiking shoes or boots.
- Steege Hill has a timber rattlesnake population, but they tend to be inactive this time of year.
