“Freezin’ for a Reason”:
Bell Station Public Access Event Set for February 8
On Saturday, February 8, members of the public are invited to pay a visit to Bell Station forest, the 500-acre property off Nut Ridge Road along the Cayuga Lake shoreline in North Lansing, just north of the Cayuga Power Plant. The event will take place between 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM. In case of bad weather, the event will be moved to Sunday, February 9.
This special day is being organized to encourage public enjoyment of this beautiful undeveloped lakeside property. There will be guided hikes for all ages and refreshments. As parking at the site is limited, shuttle rides (schedule to be announced) will be available courtesy of Lansing’s Paddle-N-More van, between the new Lansing school parking lot (corner of Rt. 34B & Ludlowville Rd.) and Bell Station.
If weather conditions allow, a hand-picked cadre of expert winter kayakers will do a short paddle to the lake shore, to demonstrate the value of having public access to 3/5 miles of Cayuga Lake shoreline available in its natural undeveloped state.
“Freezin’ for a Reason” is being organized by the Friends of Bell Station Forest, a group of Lansing residents and supporters who want to provide an opportunity for local residents to visit this beautiful land in its natural state. As a State Forest, the land could accommodate many recreational activities - right in Lansing - for birders, hikers, walkers, boaters, hunters and fishermen. Volunteers are sought to help with refreshments and other event tasks. Please contact Jennifer Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org 607-342-2397 if you are interested.
