Wild Cayuga Lake Shore

Walk in the Park episode 84

There is precious little wild, natural shoreline along most of the Finger Lakes, including the longest Finger Lake, Cayuga Lake. The Finger Lakes Land Trust has made a priority to protect remaining wild shorelines. In this episode (#84), we visit some wild shore on the west side of Cayuga Lake by boat (the MV Haendel of Ithaca Boat Tours) before it was protected, and now, on foot, when it is part of the VanRiper Conservation Area and Whitlock Nature Preserve. This episode finishes off with a Park Minute: Skylight on Buttermilk Creek.
