Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve — town of West Danby
Please RSVP with Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 607-275-9487.
The Lindsay-Parsons Preserve is one of the Land Trust’s flagship preserves as well as one of its most remarkable. At 537 acres, it contains 3.6 miles of trails that meander through a rich diversity of habitat. Your assistance is needed to help finish building a new footbridge over a stream that has persistent flooding issues. Additionally, a new section of trail needs to be cleared to help connect the new bridge to the yellow trail.
FLLT will provide all tools and gloves. Please bring water, lunch, and sturdy shoes or boots — we will be working with lumber and power tools.
The Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve is located in West Danby, about 8 miles from Ithaca. Take Rt. 13 south from Ithaca, then take Rt. 34/96 south to West Danby. Most of the preserve is located on the east side of the highway, across from Sylvan Drive and the West Danby Fire Station. Ample parking is available about 1/2 mile south of Sylvan Drive, on the east side of the road. Entrance to the parking lot is at the top of a hill, opposite a house and barn.
