Shape the Future
The Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps is an expanding organization of community volunteers who are contributing to restoration projects that are creating or improving wildlife habitat in the Onondaga Lake watershed.
The Corps was founded in 2012 to inspire future stewards of Onondaga Lake and its watershed through a hands-on, experience-based program that offers citizens and organizations the opportunity to participate in activities that help restore and sustain Onondaga Lake and its value as an Audubon Important Bird Area.
Onondaga Lake is an important wintering area for Bald Eagles and waterfowl, providing habitat, food, and water sources that many bird species depend upon for survival during the cold winter months.
Join drone pilots from Ramboll and the Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps on Saturday, October 23 at 10 a.m. at the New York State Fairgrounds - Orange Parking Lot to learn how drones are used to monitor the lake and its restored shoreline, view a variety of drones, and experience a live drone operation. Participants will be able to connect via a mobile device to see what the drone “sees.”
Unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or drones, have become an increasingly useful tool for monitoring the restoration of Onondaga Lake and its shoreline and tributaries. Drones provide a safe, efficient, and repeatable option for monitoring large landscapes such as the Honeywell restoration portfolio by offering a high-resolution bird's-eye view.
Space is limited and registration is required for the program. Click https://act.audubon.org/a/onondaga-lake-conservation-corps-drone-program to register.
