A majority of New York’s forests, including the forest at Cayuga Nature Center, are second growth. Come learn about the particular problems such forests face, and the steps you can take to ensure a healthy future for recovering land. We will highlight the signs of a neglected forest, and the benefits that improvements can yield.

Led by Matt Sacco who is Director of Environmental Education at the Cayuga Nature Center.

They are hikes, so participants should be prepared to be on their feet and out in the weather. In the event of a thunderstorm or worse, events will be canceled.
