The Finger Lakes National Forest would like to give a special thanks to all the past donors whose generosity has enabled us to celebrate the past twenty-three years. This event would not be possible without them, the continued support of the local community, and many volunteers.  If you are interested in helping, in any capacity, please contact Greg Flood at (607) 546-4470 ext. 3312.
