Join Cornell Plantations’ Director of Natural Areas, Todd Bittner, on a field trip to learn about efforts to conserve some of our region’s rarest flora on Endangered Species Day. Plantations protects 3,400 acres of natural areas, many of which contain locally, regionally, and globally rare plants. Conservation work and challenges to safeguard some of Plantations’ fifty-five rare plant species will be the focus of this trip, highlighting rare plants at a “surprise” Plantations Natural Area. The trip will proceed rain or shine. Terrain will be level except for a moderately steep hill. Pre-registration is required; group size will be limited.
Date/time: Friday, May 20, 1:00 - 4:30 PM.
Cost: $15; $10 for Plantations Members
Location: The field trip will depart by van from Plantations Nevin Welcome Center parking lot at 1:00 PM and will return by 4:30 PM.
