    A majority of New York's forests, including the forest at Cayuga Nature Center, are second growth. Come learn about the particular problems such forests face, and the steps you can take to ensure a healthy future for recovering land. We will highlight the signs of a neglected forest, and the benefits that improvements can yield.

    May 26 - Planting Flora for Fauna
    June 2 - Paleo to Present: Perspectives on Changes in Plant Life

    Learn more about restorative land management practices within a changing world. Discover better land stewardship practices and solutions for potential climate change-related complications.

    All workshops held rain or shine (barring really severe weather) Sundays at 1:00 pm. All walks begin at will last at least an hour. They are hikes, so participants should be prepared to be on their feet and out in the weather. In the event of a thunderstorm or worse, events will be canceled.

    1420 Taughannock Blvd, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

    Enjoy complementary admission to the Museum of the Earth and Cayuga Nature Center on Saturday, May 25, during our Community Free Day!

    Our “Survivors: Up Close with Living Fossils” special exhibit is now on display at the Museum of the Earth, which features live animals and plants interspersed with their distant fossilized ancestors, plus a touch tank where you can touch live horseshoe crabs and sea stars. At the Museum of the Earth you can explore the history of our planet--how the first life evolved from the earliest creatures in the sea to the evolution of life into more complex and amazing creatures. Learn about the rise of dinosaurs and mammals, and the shaping of the very landscape of our region by enormous glaciers. Visit Steggy the Stegosaurus and Amelia the Quetzalcoatlus, and marvel at the size of the Hyde Park Mastodon and the Right Whale #2030. Hunt for fossils in our Fossil Lab and view the beautiful living corals and fish in our Coral Reef exhibit.

    The Cayuga Nature Center is alive this Spring with exhibits, live animals and programs. There are more than 30 species of live animals — from hawks and foxes to trout and turtles at the Nature Center. You can see favorites Daisy the red fox, Oakley the owl, the squirrels Buddha and MJ, Ace the red-tailed hawk, Jaws the snapping turtle, and Ichabod the turkey vulture, among many others. Outside enjoy miles of trails and our six-story tree house, and inside the Nature Center see the "Cayuga Lake: Past and Present" exhibit with its two 650-gallon aquaria, and the “Layers of Life” exhibit on forest ecology, along with other fascinating and informative displays.
