Danby State Forest


Akiva Silver


Join Akiva for a walk in the woods as we hike through the spectacular Danby State Forest (in a different direction than last year). We will be working on winter ID of trees and shrubs by looking at bark, buds, and form. Akiva will also be talking about survival uses of trees and shrubs as well as their natural history. The state forest is home to a wide diversity of trees as well as a massive and surreal wetland. Meet at CCE at 10 am to carpool, or 10:30 at the site: Take 96b south to Danby, turn right on Michigan Hollow Road (which is soon after Bald Hill Road). Follow Michigan Hollow for approximately 3 miles. Parking area is on the right. Look for signs for the Finger Lakes Trail. NOTE STAGGERED MEETING TIMES depending on location.
