FLLT recently partnered with the Seneca County Soil and Water District to conduct a stream restoration project on this preserve. If you are interested in seeing or learning more about this project, please join us in helping to fill in soil where sections of the structures have settled. We will also conduct general trail maintenance.

Tools and work gloves will be provided. Conditions may be muddy so please wear appropriate footwear.
