The Center encompasses nearly 430 acres of beautiful rolling hills and shallow glacial valleys (kame-and-kettle topography), forests, fields, streams, numerous ponds, including many marl ponds and vernal (seasonal) pools, a peat bog, and a great diversity of flora and fauna. Located on the border between Cortland and Tompkins Counties, in beautiful upstate New York, we offer over 12 miles of open-to-the-public, entrance-fee free trails, public nature programs, and adventure day camps for youth.
From My Sit Spot
by Pete Angie
The first sign came this fall as bright orange ribbons affixed to the property markers, blowing in the breeze. When I saw a man in the woods I went out to talk with him. He told me of his plan to sell the timber around my sit spot, and build a few apartments.
Environmental Ed Center
Lime Hollow and OCM BOCES New Vision Environmental Science program both require greater teaching capacity — a shared goal that provides a natural partnership for a new educational facility.
Adventure Day Camps
The entire Lime Hollow staff truly looks forward to each and every day during the summer. Come rain or shine, mosquitoes or deer flies, the excitement we see in the faces and the enthusiasm we hear in the voices of our campers makes us smile.
