Come Visit!

Come visit White Hawk EcovillageWe warmly invite you to visit our village. Please email us, call 607-330-2609 or join our mailing list using the form at the bottom right. Our general meetings are typically on the second Sunday of each month, 3:00-5:30pm, although they do occasionally get rescheduled due to conflicts, so please contact us before coming out to make sure we’ll be meeting on a given day. ** As of 2020, our meetings have moved to Zoom mostly. If you would like to join, be in touch with us!

NOTE: As of September 2022, White Hawk is not currently accepting new folks to our membership process. This is to ensure our full attention and capacity to those currently exploring White Hawk membership. If you are interested in learning more, please take a moment to join our “interest list” here. We will notify you if and/or when we are again taking new people in to the membership process. If you are in the area or passing through and would still like to visit, we are still happy to try to accommodate you. Please send us an email and we’ll try to coordinate a time.

Overnight accommodations at White Hawk are sometimes available in residents’ homes. Email us to check on specific dates. When we can’t host visitors, camping is generally an option if that suits your fancy, or there’s a host of nearby options to choose from, depending on your tastes: The Wild Goose and Frog’s Way BnB’s (at EcoVillage at Ithaca); nearby resort La Tourelle, and many others nearby through Air BNB, hotels and other local options.

Please note! Before you plan a visit from out of town, we strongly encourage you to get in touch with us and have some initial conversations around what attracts you to White Hawk and what would be needed for a move here to be a good fit for everyone. We’ve learned over time that exploring these questions before a longer visit can be tremendously helpful in ensuring that both we and you don’t invest great amounts of time into a quality visit, only to learn that it isn’t a good fit.

So please, reach out to us and let’s chat. 🙂

(Of course, if you’re just passing through and looking for a quick tour or visit, that’s fine–the above cautionary note is meant more for those looking to spend an overnight or longer here and that might need some time and energy on the part of us residents.)

We’re located in Tompkins County, NY, six miles south of Ithaca and very close to Cornell University and Ithaca College. We are one and a half hours south of Syracuse, two from Rochester, three from Buffalo and Niagara Falls, and four from New York City and Philadelphia.

When you arrive:

We are so glad you made it! Feel free to visit the playground or community garden in the center circle. Please be respectful of people’s personal homes, but be sure to enjoy the views of the valley and woods around us.

If you are looking for a longer hike, ask your host or the community member you are visiting to point you towards the pond or Samantha Forest, where you can access our mile+ of beautiful trails (you might want to bring your boots, depending on the season). Don’t forget to check for ticks!
