The Chautauqua Watershed Conservancy will host a public snowshoe tour of the CWC’s Cassadaga Creek Preserve at 1p.m. Saturday, March 2. A CWC guide will lead attendees on skis or snowshoes as they explore the 150-acre site, located adjacent to 3788 Bloomer Road in Sinclairville. Those who don’t have snowshoes but would like to attend this tour can Evergreen Outfitters at (716) 763-2266 in advance to reserve a pair. If there is not adequate snow for snowshoeing and skiing, a shorter hike will be offered.
The tour route will be mostly flat and approximately 2.5 miles. After the tour, all are invited to stay for a bonfire at the entrance of the preserve. S’mores, coffee, and cocoa will be provided, and those who attend are asked to consider bringing a snack to share.
This event is free for members, with a suggested donation of $5 for non-members. Reservations are encouraged, so please RSVP to the conservancy in advance by calling 716-664-2166 or email
