Thanks to our community, the College Lodge Forest is now a permanently protected nature preserve as well as a member of the nationwide Old-Growth Forest Network. Join us for a virtual event to learn what we have planned for this incredible place, one of Western New York's hidden gems. Stewardship Director Josh Balisteri will give a brief summary of our public access plans, including the trails, while Stewardship Coordinator Erik Danielson will outline our habitat restoration/invasive species plans. You'll learn about what we have in store for 2023, and you'll also have the opportunity to ask us questions.
