Join us every Friday this August for our Annual James E. Potorti PRI/State Parks Gorge Walk Series. For the past 15 years, PRI has been offering this series of free interpretive walks in collaboration with the local State Parks. Discover the rich, geologic historic of the Finger Lakes area as you explore the natural beauty of central New York.

The walks were officially named in 2004 in memory of Ithaca native James E. Potorti, who died in the September 11, 2001 attacks. Potorti, 52, was a vice president at Marsh & McLennan and worked on the 94th floor of 1 World Trade Center. His first career, however, was as a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey. He grew up in Ithaca and attended SUNY Oswego.

Cost: Walks are free, but State Parks may have a parking fee of $7
