GENESEO – Members of the Genesee Valley Conservancy shared information on recent work completed to the Indian Fort Nature Preserve during their partners presentation this morning. The presentation highlighted numerous upgrades to the 60-acre preserve located just off Jones Bridge Road in Geneseo.
Stewardship Director Benjamin Gajewski explained the improvements include a kiosk at the trailhead, signs and benches on the trails, a parking lot and a bridge spanning the perennial creek that cuts through the preserve.
The preserve sits on an area listed on the National Register of Historic Places and features a stream, pond, 100-foot waterfall and access to the Genesee River. Because of its river frontage, the preserve can be used for fishing and canoeing as well as hiking, bird watching and snowshoeing. The preserve is open to the public daily between sunup and sundown.
