Beagling at Indian Fort Nature Preserve
Beagling at Indian Fort Nature Preserve

Join the Roscommon Hounds to observe this longstanding Genesee Valley tradition.

Beagling will start at 2:00 at the Indian Fort Nature Preserve and will last for about an hour. Immediately following, all are invited back to the Conservancy office for an informal tea. Please bring a beverage or snack to pass!

If you come, find a more experienced beagler to learn the edict and process. You’ll have the pleasure to watch the beagles work as they attempt to sniff out rabbits and flush them from their hiding places. If one is lucky you will see a rabbit dash off! Wear mud-boots and be dressed for the weather.
