Autumn Views at Gannett Hill

Saturday, October 7, 2017,  10:00 AM
6475 Gannett Hill Park Drive, Naples, NY 
Ten thousand to twenty thousand years ago, during the Glacial Age, ice carved and sculptured the Finger Lakes Region.  There’s no better place to slip away to than the highest point in Ontario County, Gannett Hill Park, in the scenic Bristol Hills.  At an elevation of 2,256 feet above sea level, you’ll have expansive autumn views.  We will meet at the parking area adjacent to the Lookout and observe autumn plants on our walk to the “Jump-Off”.

Lagoon Park walk with Maura Sullivan
Saturday, September 16, 2017
beginning at 10 AM

Join us as we enjoy a walk through the Lagoon Park with Maura Sullivan of FLCC.  We are looking forward to a leisurely stroll through this 34 acre wildlife preserve overlooking the Canandaigua Outlet that has been our focus of restoration and community education in recent years.  We may revisit the restoration efforts and continued work by the Canandaigua Lake Watershed Association, learn about the relationship shared with FLCC, or take a closer look at the habitat of Lagoon Park and the creatures it supports.  Meet at the Gazebo to start.

THANKS to Dawn Carter for sharing these photos from the Lagoon Park walk:

Visit to the Bourroughs Audubon Nature Center

Wednesday, August 30, 10:00 AM 
at the BANC Sanctuary,
301 Railroad Mills Road, Pittsford
 In late summer the wetlands of our sanctuary are colorfully arrayed with Goldenrod, Joe Pye Weed, Boneset, Great Blue Lobelia, and Turtlehead.  Members of the Canandaigua Botanical Society will join us and our dragonfly expert, Jon Dombrowski, as we search for dragonflies and damselflies along our boardwalks and trails amid the beautiful flowers of late summer.  Bring binoculars, water, and a lunch to enjoy on the porch afterwards, if you wish.
