OLT Upcoming Events- Mark Your Calendars!

The Auchinbreck Divide – Sunday, May 22nd at 2 p.m.

Experience the geologic and cultural history of this Cherry Valley landmark with SUNY Professor Dr. Les Hasbargen and Auchinbreck owner, Kent Barwick. We will walk to the top of the hill where one can view the Adirondacks to the north and the Susquehanna Valley to the south and where the watersheds divide to the Mohawk and Susquehanna valleys. We will learn about the fascinating history of Auchinbreck and enjoy the spring flowers in bloom on our way. Don’t miss this unique event! Space is limited; call connie to reserve a spot.

Leatherstocking Falls WalkTuesday, May 24th at 10 a.m.

Also known as "Panther’s Leap", these legendary falls are where, in James Fenimore Cooper’s "Leatherstocking Tales", Leatherstocking saves the life of an Indian maiden. The short hike should last approximately 1 hour and is moderately strenuous. Leatherstocking Falls is located on County Highway 28 (Pierstown Road) at the historic Leatherstocking Farm north of Cooperstown. We will be visiting this landmark in conjunction with the Susquehanna Chapter of the ADK. The public is invited.

And don’t forget these family-fun activities throughout the year:

"On the Farm, In the Garden" Photography Contest – through December 31, 2011. In conjunction with the Cooperstown Farmer’s Market, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, our theme for 2011 has taken a new twist. See for more information, guidelines and photo submission forms.
