Beaver Swamp Hike at the Chautauqua Creek East Branch Preserve09:30 AM to 11:00 AM
Join us on Friday, August 9th from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM for a tour of the beaver swamp area of our Chautauqua Creek East Branch Preserve, which is located on Mayville-Sherman Road (Route 430) in the Town of Chautauqua, just outside of Summerdale opposite Red Wing Road. This 21.6-acre preserve is in the headwaters of the watershed that supplies the Village of Westfield with its municipal water supply. The tour will be led by preserve manager Jay Stratton, a CWC member who generously donated the site to the Conservancy in 2005. He is a teacher, native of Westfield, and lifelong researcher of the plants, wildlife and people associated with Chautauqua Creek and Gorge. He and his family have founded the Ganowungo Trust, a fund at the Conservancy to conserve the Chautauqua Gorge and its old growth forests. This tour is open to the public, with a suggested $5 donation from non-members. Those interested in attending should wear appropriate wetland footwear and pre-register for the hike by calling 664-2166 or emailing email@example.com.
