Genesee Land Trust will hold a work party on Saturday, March 26 from 9 a.m. to noon for trails connecting to Ganargua Creek Meadow in Macedon.

About the event

The work day will be conducted jointly with the Macedon Trails Committee to create a new trail on the Wayne ARC property, connecting to trails on Genesee Land Trust’s Ganargua Creek Meadow. Work will include clearing excess foliage trail. Work content will range from moderate to heavy. Tools required: work gloves, wheelbarrows, saws, loppers and clippers.
All properties are managed strictly for nature preservation. Welcome uses include nature study, photography, and walking. To avoid damaging vegetation, stay on the trail where possible. There is no hunting or trapping; no horses, motorized vehicles, or bicycles permitted; all dogs must be leashed and cleaned up after; no removal of any vegetation or dead wood; no camping or fires; and no trail cutting or marking of trees.

Genesee Land Trust

The preserve is made up of an upland area of hardwoods, wildflowers and shrubs, the winding Ganargua Creek crossing a broad floodplain, and an open meadow where food and cover for birds and other animals is abundant. There is exceptional butterfly habitat in the meadow.

The land, 56 acres, was donated in 1996 to Genesee Land Trust for preservation in honor of Tim Johnson, by his mother, Cynthia Kesselring and his step-father, Leo Kesselring.

How to get there

From Route 31 in Macedon, turn south onto Wayneport Road, then turn east onto Wilkinson Road. Continue to the end of the road and park near the bridge at the intersection with Victor Road.
