We continue to learn about natural treasures around our area.  Today we hiked through Fischer Old-Growth Forest, one of the Cornell Plantations Natural Areas.  It just happens to be here in Newfield, a few minutes drive from our house.

A trail loops around the 42 acres over some rather steep and rugged terrain typical of the area. There’s an impressive diversity of trees and other plants here.  Parts of the woods are quite open with a canopy over 100 feet above provided by large old trees.  We will be back.
