Hi everyone, I am leading a half-day field trip this coming Saturday morning. Meet in the parking lot at the Lab of Ornithology at 7:30 am. We'll start at the Genung Preserve in Freeville -- its one of the properties of the Finger Lakes Land Trust. Then we'll head over to Hile School Road. We'll likely finish the morning at the Herman Road wetlands just outside of Freeville.
There is a chance of showers Saturday morning, but it looks like the bulk of the rain will hold off until afternoon. Nonetheless, be prepared for some Ithacation from the sky. It also will be warm. So, bug spray might come in handy. Bring some water to stay hydrated. The trails at the Genung Preserve are rather flat, but the vegetation is not mowed, so we'll be wading through some Goldenrod and similar plants. At Hile School Road, we'll be along the dirt road. If we have time, we'll stop by Herman Road (or Cady Road, if Herman is too busy due to the Rt 38 detour). More walking along the road there. See you Saturday! Jody Enck Jody W.
