10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.


Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve — town of West Danby


Please RSVP with Nature Preserve Manager Jason Gorman, by emailing jasongorman@fllt.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 help is needed to help refresh trail markings, clear fallen limbs, and cut back encroaching brush.  This work day will include lots of hiking and some strenuous activity but all skill and energy levels are welcome.  All of your hard work will be rewarded with stunning vistas and a chance to meet folks who love and support the Land Trust’s mission like you do.

Please wear sturdy footwear, and clothes that you do not mind getting dirty. FLLT will provide tools and work gloves as well as some refreshments and light snacks.  Please bring your own lunch and consider bringing a backpack.


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.
