Let's take a trip!
Last year, Adkmountaingirl and I visited Cornell Plantations in Ithaca, on our way back from a bird club trip to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Unfortunately, we did not have nearly enough time to explore this extraordinary facility, and promised ourselves that we would return.
I was curious to see whether any of the Upstate NY Forum folks from the Albany/Saratoga region might want to participate in a group trip to Cornell Plantations. "Drop-in" tours are offered, but we could certainly visit and wander at our leisure. It would be a LONG day trip, or we could do some sort of inexpensive overnight (IF I can find a better place to stay this time!). Feel free to contact me off-list if you prefer.
