My first trek as a TILT employee! Should be a beautiful walk for anyone who wants to join me:
We’re looking for Signs of Spring on March 24, at 10:00 am!
Join us and naturalist Peter O’Shea for a walk on the Macsherry Trail, in the Crooked Creek Preserve. We’ll be looking for signs of spring, and will hopefully see some animal tracks and other wildlife activity. The woods are especially open at this time of year, so it’s easy to see the lay of the land and learn about the structure of the forest. Peter O’Shea is the author of several books and is a noted authority on the northern woods.The 3 mile Macsherry Trail meanders through multiple habitats alongside Crooked Creek, looping out to the creek itself and back again to the trailhead. There is also a one mile loop.We’ll meet at the trailhead on Indian Point Road at 10 am. Wear your boots, since it’s Spring and we’re likely to encounter wet and mud.Please sign up on our website, or by phoning the office at 315-686-5345, so we know how many to expect (and how many brownies to bake.) Directions are also available there.This event is free and part of our TILTreks & Talks series, encouraging living, learning and conserving in the Thousand Islands.
