Please join this Beginner Hike at The Natural Lands Trust Preserve, Binky Lee located in Chester Springs, PA.
Binky Lee Preserve is a 112-acre expanse of former agricultural land that is being converted back to natural woodlands and meadows. An exploration of the trails provides a wonderful introduction to natural area restoration techniques. The view from atop the hill offers a rare glimpse of Chester County past: undeveloped woodlands and fields in all directions.
Animals include red fox, wood and tree frogs, raccoon, eastern chipmunk, and eastern flying squirrel
