FESTIVAL | ForestFest 100th Anniversary


On Saturday, August 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., join a celebration of all things sylvan at the 100th anniversary of Forest Fest. The event will take place at Genesee County Park and Forest (11095 Bethany Center Road, East Bethany), and will feature live birds of prey, lumberjack sports, crafts, demos, games, guided hikes, and cake to mark the centennial of New York State's oldest county forest. Established in 1915, the site now boasts 430 acres of forest and rolling hills, which includes more than 10 miles of trails, five ponds, pavilions and playgrounds, and a variety of wildlife, trees, and woodland plants.

A special dedication and commemorative tree planting will also take place, and you can meet experts and find out what you can do for your trees and forests. For more information and to register in advance (recommended), call 344-1122.
