Description

Michael Hough, a botanist and instructor at SUNY Cortland, will lead the group through rich woodlands to some scattered rich fens populated with Canada lily, orchids, and other interesting fen plants. Most of the walk will be on well-maintained trails with moderate slopes. Total distance about 1 mile round-trip. Access to fens will require footwear suitable for wet conditions, typically ankle deep in spots, though both are located close to trails. Actual time spent in the fens will be minimal to reduce disturbance. Meet at CCE at 10:30 to carpool, or at the parking area on Gracie Road at 11 am.
