A woodswalk will be held at Piestraks Forest in Steuben County. The property encompasses approximately 1,100 acres and is guided by a 480A management plan.

We will meet at 9:00 AM for coffee and pastries. At noon we break for a quality lunch. All food, water and snacks provided.

We will board our wagon to drive to a section of the property to observe the following:

  • A road system constructed throughout the property.
  • Six (6) vernal pools.
  • Twenty (20) plus trees that have been identified and marked for observation and discussion.

Our forester, Mr. Bruce Robinson, will conduct and narrate the forest composition and vernal pools involved.

After lunch we will be visiting a two (2) acre enclosure area to examine the results of fencing and the 10-year growth. Along the way there will be other topics that can be addressed.

This woodswalk is an outreach program of the Western Finger Lakes Chapter of NYFOA. All are welcome and this would be a worth while experience for all Master Forester Owners (MFOs).

Coming from the east or west take route 17 to Corning/Painted Post where you will pick up route 15 south towards Williamsport, PA. Exit at the Presho exit. At the stop sign turn left and go a couple hundred yards to old route 15. Turn right on old 15 and head towards Lindley about 5 miles. Past the Green Shingles Restaurant on the left the next right is Watson Creek Road. We will have signs posted.

Would-be attendees are asked to RSVP Ed Piestrak. (also call if you’d like further information)- Phone: 570-735-7647 Cell: 607-205-0350 Email:
