In this episode (182) of Walk in the Park, we visit Owasco Lake, the Finger Lake directly east of Cayuga Lake. We look at the Owasco Lake watershed. Then we visit Fillmore Glen State Park in the valley of the Owasco Inlet south of the Owasco Lake. Named for Millard Fillmore, the 13th president of the United States who was born nearby, Fillmore Glen’s most attractive and accesible feature is the Cowsheds Falls.
We continue with a virtual flyover from Fillmore Glen, over the Owasco Flats, and north down Owasco Lake to Emerson Park in Auburn. We follow that with a video visit to Owasco Flats Nature Preserve, scenes along Owasco Lake moving north, finishing at the shore at the north end of Owasco Lake at Emerson Park.
Finally, we watch a short video about the Finger Lakes Land Trust’s campaign to establish a nature preserve along the east shore of Owasco Lake, which would be just the third publicly accessible conservation area along the lake.
