James Potorti Interpretive Gorge Walk - Robert H. Treman State Park

Friday, August 23, 2019 at 10:00am to 11:30am

Robert H. Treman State Park Upper Park Road off of Enfield Falls Rd, Ithaca, NY

Join us for one of our annual James Potorti Museum of the Earth/State Parks Gorge Walks on Friday, August 23, in Robert H. Treman State Park.

PRI has been offering this series of free Friday-morning interpretive walks in partnership with the Finger Lakes State Parks for more than 16 years. The Finger Lakes region has an outstanding geological record exposed in the local gorges. These guided walks will introduce major concepts about geology and geologic time, allowing one to interpret the geological history of the region while enjoying the beauty of our local area.The walks were officially named in 2004 in memory of Ithaca native James E. Potorti, a geologist who died in the September 11, 2001 attacks. Please note that while the walks are free, there is a parking charge for the State Parks. Meet at Upper Treman Park, at the end of the parking lot of near the start of the trails.
