Plans for the Logan Hill Nature Preserve Meeting Date June 8

The Candor Historical Society, along with the Candor Chamber of Commerce and the Candor Community Services Corporation invite the public to a special gathering on June 8, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Candor Fire Hall to learn more about Candor’s Logan Hill Nature Preserve.

This unique designation is located on Logan Hill and incorporates a 290-acre plot of land in the Village and Town of Candor, which was donated to the Finger Lakes Land Trust by Dick and Betsy Darlington.

Representatives from The Finger Lakes Land Trust will be on hand to share the Trust’s plans for this piece of property that will be used to enhance habitat diversity in the area, as well to develop a network of hiking trails along with a parking area and interpretive kiosk, and to develop a public canoe/kayak launch area on Catatonk Creek. The property is a wonderful mosaic of woodlands, meadows, wetlands, ponds, and streams. Hilltop meadows provide distant vistas of the Allegheny Plateau, while thick forests harbor abundant wildlife. A steep descent takes visitors to the banks of Catatonk Creek.
