Six Mile Source

In this episode (#136) of Walk in the Park, we take a two-mile hike at the Finger Lakes Land Trust’s Roy H. Park Preserve and Hammond Hill State Forest in Dryden, looking at the works of beavers and the changing forest near the headwaters of Six Mile Creek, the City of Ithaca’s water supply. But first we swing from a rope on the cliffs of Watkins Glen State Park with one of its “scalers.” And we walk the street in Ithaca’s Streets Alive Festival. And we are pleased to learn of the creation of the Harriet Tubman Home National Historical Park in Auburn. And finally, we look at a few of the trees and wildflowers along the creek in Buttermilk Falls State Park in Ithaca, NY.
