Sweedler and Thayer Preserves—town of Ithaca, see link for directions


Executive Director Andy Zepp will lead participants on a 2.3-mile hike through these two preserves which provide excellent examples of the area’s geologic history and ecological systems. Here, multiple waterfalls splash down along Lick Brook on its journey to Cayuga Lake, including one that is nearly 140 feet tall. Andy will discuss the history of the preserve and the Land Trust’s role in acquiring it, as well as its geology, flora, and fauna. This walk will involve some limited steep climbs.
