Park Minute: Buttermilk Creek Becomes Lake Treman

In the upper section of Buttermilk Falls State Park, in Ithaca, NY, far from the gorge and waterfalls, Buttermilk Creek enters shallow Lake Treman. Created by a dam built at least 70 years ago, the lake is mostly silted in and is becoming a marsh with cattail grasses. It’s a good place to watch for wildlife.
