2022 Field Trips and Workdays

Mother’s Day Wildflower Hike, Sunday, May 8

Coon Mountain Preserve, Westport; 11 a.m.–2 p.m.

Leaders: Dan Spada and Ray Curran, volunteers with the Northern Forest Atlas, Adirondack Botanical Society and NY Flora Association. Dan and Ray are also former leaders of the Adirondack Park Agency natural resource division. 

Coon Mountain is bursting with wildflowers around Mother’s Day, and you don’t have to be a mom to sign up for this moderate 1.4-mile round trip summit hike, including a steep and rocky section, with stops along the way to enjoy the woodland flora.

World Migratory Bird Day Walk, Saturday, May 14 — WAIT LIST

Noblewood Park, Willsboro; 8–10 a.m.

Leader: Derek Rogers, Adirondack Land Trust stewardship manager and Adirondack region editor for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology eBird program and the NYS Ornithological Association journal The Kingbird.

Derek will lead a walk at the Town of Willsboro’s Noblewood Park (protected in partnership with The Nature Conservancy’s Adirondack Chapter), a top birding destination. The forest and a sandy delta at the Boquet River mouth host amazing bird diversity.

Bird Hike, Friday, May 27 (wait-list only)

Glenview Preserve, Harrietstown; 8–10 a.m.

Leader: Derek Rogers, Adirondack Land Trust stewardship manager and Adirondack region editor for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology eBird program and the NYS Ornithological Association journal The Kingbird.

This is a chance to experience the Adirondack Land Trust’s Glenview Preserve, which hosts a diverse suite of bird species—from grassland and boreal specialists to colorful warblers—on a mosaic of habitat types. The hiking is easy-to-moderate but may include uneven and wet ground.

Volunteer Workdays

Saturday, June 25, Glenview Preserve, Harrietstown; Time TBA

We’re seeking volunteers to help us expand and manage a native pollinator garden within the preserve. Volunteers will help prepare new areas for seeding and tend a recently seeded plot. We’ll also have fun learning about citizen science tools and initiatives such as iNaturalist and eBird. 

Friday, July 15, Glenview Preserve, Harrietstown; Time TBA

Lend a gloved hand as we continue to beautify this beloved vista with debris removal. We’ll weave in some citizen science, birding and perhaps even some invasive species management.
