Susquehanna Greenway – May 16, 2023

Report by Scott Fielder.  On May 16, 2023, there were two hikes/walks on the Greenway – a wildflower walk and a faster-paced hike.  There were two separate sign-up sheets and both hikes were well attended.  Scott Fielder led the wildflower walk and on it several invasive and/or non-native species were noted and discussed.  Among theseContinue reading “Susquehanna Greenway – May 16, 2023”

Oneonta Greenway – February 14, 2023

Report by Jendy Murphy and Paul Wehren.  It must have been the sunny blue skies and temperatures around 40 degrees that brought out thirty-two hikers at the Oneonta Greenway on Silas Lane. Unusual weather for February in upstate New York, but everyone seemed to enjoy it, and maybe even need it! It was nice toContinue reading “Oneonta Greenway – February 14, 2023”

Susquehanna Greenway      December 13, 2022

Report by Linda Pearce.  With temperatures in the teens and a cloudless blue sky, twenty-four people gathered for a brisk walk at the Susquehanna Greenway on December 13th.  As we crossed the field to the trail, we entered into what seemed like a “Winter Wonderland”.  The snowfall from the previous Sunday had clung to allContinue reading “Susquehanna Greenway      December 13, 2022”

May 10th, 2022 – Oneonta Greenway

Report by Scott Fielder.  On May 10th, seventeen hikers showed up on a perfectly beautiful day for a two and a quarter mile hike on the Greenway.  The pace was not fast as we wanted to observe wildflowers and birds.  We were not disappointed in the variety of either.  The following wildflowers were in bloom: Continue reading “May 10th, 2022 – Oneonta Greenway”

February 22nd, 2022 – Susquehanna Greenway

Report by Bill and Kathy Holmstrom.  On February 22nd, twenty-two hikers joined together for a 2.3-mile circuit hike on the Susquehanna Greenway.  Before starting, we celebrated Roberta Austin’s birthday with a round of “Happy Birthday”.

October 5th, 2021 – Oneonta Greenway

Report by Jann Ewen.  On another cloudy, potentially rainy day, 19 ADKers braved a hike on the Oneonta Greenway.  That included three of our new members: Peggy and Arthur Palmer, and Marianne Coursen…plus a “paddling” of Merganser ducks, several unidentified cherry-seeking birds (probably Cedar Waxwings), and a “scourge” of 27,241 hungry, biting insects. It wasContinue reading “October 5th, 2021 – Oneonta Greenway”

April 27th, 2021 – Oneonta Greenway

Report by Aleda Koehn.  The day was gray and started out rather cold, in the thirties, but 16 ADKers came to the Greenway for a “Walk and Spot Spring Wildflowers”.  As we started from the large parking area at the end of Silas Lane, a mower came along the edge of the field.  I wavedContinue reading “April 27th, 2021 – Oneonta Greenway”

Oneonta Greenway – January 5th, 2021

Report by Aleda Koehn.  Nineteen ADKer’s came to the Greenway on a cold and very cloudy day to enjoy a walk.  The trail was snowy from a recent storm, but prior footsteps made a walkable path.  We were greeted by Mike Forster-Rothbart, who was taking photos for the Hometown newspaper.  He took many shots ofContinue reading “Oneonta Greenway – January 5th, 2021”
