Tree ID Walk at the Niagara Escarpment Preserve

Saturday, January 29th
11:00AM-1:00PM
Niagara Escarpment Preserve, Lockport

Learn how to identify some of our region's unique native trees while walking through the Niagara Escarpment Preserve. This 36-acre property on Leete Road in Lockport includes 21 acres of contiguous mature hardwood forest along with 10 acres of restored grassland habitat. Participants will learn how to identify the trees that populate the mature hardwood forest community, and how the ecology of that community functions over the decades and centuries. This walk will be led by the Land Conservancy's Naturalist, Erik Danielson.

This event has been rescheduled from the original date due to inclement weather.

Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Survey at the College Lodge Forest

Saturday, February 12th
11:00AM-1:00PM
College Lodge Forest, Brocton

Join Jonathan Titus, professor of biology at SUNY Fredonia, and his wife Priscilla Titus, our former staff ecologist, for our annual volunteer survey of Hemlock Woolly Adelgid at the College Lodge Forest. To date, thankfully, no Hemlock Woolly Adelgid has been found at the College Lodge Forest. But early detection of this invasive insect pest is the best means of protecting our hemlock forests throughout the region. You will receive directions to the College Lodge Forest once you register. Registrants will also receive a short video on how to spot Hemlock Woolly Adelgid in advance of the event.
