The Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve consists of 537 acres of forests, meadows, brushland, gorges, streams, kettle ponds and wetlands. The diverse habitats found in the preserve are home to an equally diverse variety of flora and fauna. One of the Finger Lakes Land Trust's and the Cornell Institute for Research in Chemical Ecology (CIRCE)'s goals for this preserve was to make it the world's first temperate-zone preserve for research in biodiversity and chemical ecology.
Much to comtemplate as we hike the trails. Bring your binoculars to enjoy the many birds in the preserve.
Wear sturdy hiking boots as the trails may be muddy or slippery. Bring water, snacks and sun protection. Ticks will be looking for a free ride, be prepared. The NYS Department of Health website provides good information to prevent, repel and protect yourself after your hike.
Please plan to meet at the EMS parking lot at 9 am to carpool to the site. If you plan to meet us there plan aim for 9:15 at the preserve.
