Our new preserve on Owasco Lake—Sam Adams Rd./Fire Lane 18, town of West Niles, Cayuga County
Please RSVP with Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 607-275-9487.
Help is needed to restore grassland habitat! We will be removing invasive shrubs and trees to allow native plants to reestablish themselves and provide critical habitat for birds and insects. Be prepared to haul brush, limbs, and logs from the meadow. The Land Trust will supply work gloves and refreshments. Learn more about this project.
