The True Tale of the Beavers at Ganondagan

Yesterday was the second event in the Friends of Ganondagan's Savor the Summer Series - "The True Tale of the Beavers at Ganondagan." It was a wonderful day for a hike and Peter Jemison did a spectacular job in sharing the beauty and history of the site as well as the wonderful views of the handiwork of Nature's Premier Engineer - the Beaver.

In case you missed it, we have put a slideshow gallery up at:

This walk was FREE to Friends of Ganondagan members and $3 for adults and $2 for children for the general public. Please check out our events calendar for more of our events and programming.

We need your help!

From Jeanette Miller, Executive Director of the Friends of Ganondagan:

Hello everyone,
In our "green efforts" we are in need of a few items you might have in your home or at your business for some projects we are working on to sell in the gift shop this summer:

we need your empty 18 oz OATMEAL containers or 24 oz CORNMEAL containers (or something similar)

we need 30# or 40# paper

We need these as soon as possible (deadline May 22) - so if you have any (ask your family and friends, too) - please drop them off at the visitors center or gift shop 9am-5pm Tuesday through Sunday; if you must deliver after those hours - just leave at the Site Manager's back door.

Thank you everyone!

Ganondagan's Fort Hill Slide Show

Speaking of wildflowers, be sure to take a look at our newly updated Gallery web page to see the first of many slide shows that has been created for it. This slide show is of many native wildflowers and plants currently visible from Ganondagan's Fort Hill Trails. We hope you enjoy it!

And please remember to NOT pick any wildflowers that you see in your walks. Not only is it prohibited in all New York State Parks, but many woodland plants do not tolerate picking well. It may kill some plants, like trillium. Please bring your camera and take only photos!
