Hike stunning gorge trails and learn about Finger Lakes fossils

Ithaca's spectacular gorges are among the most fossil-rich places on Earth, providing abundant evidence of our prehistoric past.

Join us on an exploration of the area's rocks, fossils, and past and current flora and fauna led by Warren Allmon, geologist, paleontologist, naturalist, director of Ithaca's Paleontological Research Institution and the Museum of the Earth, and the Hunter R. Rawlings III Professor of Paleontology in Cornell's Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.

Daily field trips to dramatic sites will require the ability to wade a stream and climb steep steps without difficulty.
