Places To Run: Satterlee Creek Environmental Center (Litchfield PA.)

Welcome to episode #6 of my ongoing 'Places To Run' video series. I hope that these short cinematic videos will encourage you to get safely outdoors at some great local locations during the Covid-19 crisis and begin to form habits that will continue long after it has passed.

 Today we cross the Susquehanna River for the first time to explore the rolling double-track of the Satterlee Creek Environmental Center. Located behind the old Litchfield Elementary in Sayre School District, the SCEC offers a small sample of rolling double track framed by fields, a stream, pavilion and other features. Great for walking, looped runs, or as a diversion during a longer road run in the hills outside of Sayre.

Why:
Peter Onofre succumbed to lung cancer on April 16, 1990. He was 47.  He left behind his loving wife, Jean, and their three children: Mark (12), David (9), and Maryellen (5). Nineteen years later, Jean passed away from breast cancer on April 24, 2009.  Cancer affects millions of people every year and this family is determined to join in the fight against cancer so that other families may be spared the heartache that they have become all too familiar with. 
Proceeds:
All donations and proceeds are split between the local Nancy Quatrini Fund, American Lung Association, and National Breast Cancer Foundation 
Purpose:
This event’s mission is to help those within our community get the care that they might otherwise not be able to afford, as well as contribute to the research devoted to curing various types of cancer.  Cancer is not picky; it affects EVERYONE no matter age, race, or religion.  This event is meant to raise funds to fight cancer and bring a community together.
This is something that the Onofre family would like to turn into an annual event. Each year, they would like to support and honor the victims and survivors of various cancers.

In episode #5 of my Places To Run Video Series I give a brief cinematic video tour of Waverly Glen Park in Waverly NY. Be sure to  subscribe to my youtube channel as more episodes featuring local recreation spots are coming.

Places To Run: Forbidden Path (Waverly NY.)



Welcome back to VRC's new video series on places to run (or walk/hike ect..) This series will begin with a focus on the off-road locations nearest VRC's focus-area , and then gradually branch out across the region encompassing all surfaces and distances. The whole world might be on 'lock down' thanks to Covid-19, but the woods are still open, and can be safely traversed with a little bit of common sense. While recording the first 4 videos in this series I've encountered fewer than 3 other people, and always at a safe distance.

"The trailhead can be accessed at the junction of NY Rt. 17C and PA Rt. 220 in Waverly, NY. Look for the ‘Trails of Tioga’ sign on the SW corner. Park in a legal spot along Broad Street near Ted Clark’s Busy Market and carefully walk west across Rt. 220. Go down the embankment to the trailhead."

Places To Run: Wildwood Nature Reserve



"A combination of wetlands, open fields, a pond, a vernal pool, and some upland woods interspersed with trails, this 50 acre nature reserve is a great spot for hiking, birding, fishing, and just enjoying nature. Many trees along the trails are marked with large diamond-shaped numbered tags, which correspond to a description in our ‘tree trail’ brochure. This is a great way to learn about our local trees. Located east of Waverly, NY on Shepard Road in the Town of Barton, Wildwood can be accessed from Rt. 17C in NY or Cayuta Street in Milltown, PA. Shepard Road is 3.5 miles east of the junction of NY Rt. 17C and PA Rt. 220 in Waverly. Drive east on Rt. 17C and turn right on Shepard Rd. Wildwood is 0.5 miles south on Shepard Road. At the Wildwood sign, turn left to access the parking lot. From the intersection of PA Rt. 199 (N. Keystone Ave.) and Mohawk St. in Sayre, PA turn east onto Mohawk and drive 0.5 miles. Turn right onto Cayuta Street and drive 0.8 miles. Turn left onto Shepard Rd. Drive 1.3 miles and turn right at the Wildwood sign into the parking lot driveway."

Places To Run: Diahoga Trail

Thanks to the virus that shall not be named, spring has been cancelled, and summer is in jeopardy, but one of the benefits of living out here in rural America is that the great outdoors are never more than a few minutes away. Be sure to head out and enjoy them. There are still plenty of safe outdoor activities to enjoy in our area.  Take a short cinematic tour of once such location in my latest video.
