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.
The Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps Photography Exhibit, entitled A Celebration of Recovery and Resiliency, will showcase 30 amazing images of Onondaga Lake’s birds, other wildlife and their habitats, while educating the community about Onondaga Lake as an Audubon Important Bird Area. Additionally, National Audubon Society staff and volunteers will have binoculars, spotting scopes and field guides to point out birds that enhabit Onondaga Lake, including Bald Eagle, Common Merganser, Ring-necked Duck and many more.
The exhibit will be at the Honeywell Onondaga Lake Visitor Center, 280 Restoration Way, Syracuse, NY 13209, on Saturday, March 25 9AM-4PM and Sunday, March 26 12PM-4PM and is hosted by Audubon New York and Honeywell. Admission is $5.
