Woods Walk

A free Woods Walk will take place Saturday on the property of Otis and Patty Barber, 6399 Route 380, Sinclairville. The walk will be taking approximately the same tour as it did three seasons ago. The proposed pond has now been completed. The cabin site now has an enclosed cabin. A timber sale is anticipated soon if the conditions are right and a forester will tentatively be there to discuss and answer questions about that. Coffee will be served at 9:30 a.m. at Barber’s residence. The group will leave for the walk at 10 a.m. and return for lunch at noon. If you can attend, call 962-8175 so organizers can plan enough food for lunch. If you forget to call and can come, just show up.
