Donated to CNYLT by Willard and Barbara Lipe, the property is located behind the Edwards Falls Dam on Pompey Center Road and, although scenic, access is difficult.
This preserve was donated to CNYLT in 1982 by Mary Ormsby Bigsby in memory of her son, Gerald William Bigsby. The preserve's main feature is the drumlin that dominates the property and provides a panoramic view of Syracuse. The property hosts a variety of animals and plants including hundreds of conifers planted by the Bigsby family. Trails are well maintained. Access is via the parking lot of the Taunton Memorial United Presbyterian Church at 4326 Fay Road.
This preserve was acquired through a number of purchases and donations from 1975 through 1987. This preserve contains one of the main drainage channels that flows into New York State's Stanley J. Hamlin Marsh Wildlife Management Area and hosts a wide variety of waterfowl during the fall migration.
This preserve located along Richard Road uphill from and adjacent to Lourdes Camp of the Roman Catholic Church. High Hickory was donated to CNYLT in 1989 by three doctors: Margaret L. Wilson, Mary Ellen Trimble and Barbara R. Rennick and provides a spectacular view of Skaneateles Lake.
This preserve contains a small stream, an overgrown Hawthorn orchard, almost impenetrable shrub areas and woodlands. A former Native American settlement was located in the area. It provides nesting habitat for many birds, including Wild Turkeys and Red-tailed Hawks and winter habitat for a flock of hardy American Robins.
