Naturalist and preserve steward Bob Beck takes us on a tour of the ecological richness created by an Ice Age legacy, visiting swamps, fens, bogs and the remarkable biodiversity created by glacial eskers and kettle ponds in this 309 acre nature preserve along Fall Creek between Freeville and McLean, NY.
