Shape the Future
Thursday, August 10 6-8PM
Honeywell Canoe and Kayak Launch, Pumphouse Road, Syracuse, NY.
The Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps will lead a recreational, 2-mile paddle along Nine Mile Creek and Onondaga Lake's recently restored wetlands to experience the lake's birds and other wildlife. Onondaga Lake is an important stopover area for migratory shorebirds, songbirds and birds of prey during their long and impressive journey. Birding and habitat experts from Montezuma Audubon Center and Parsons will discuss how enhanced wetlands along the lakeshore are supporting the Onondaga Lake watershed and its value as an Important Bird Area. A limited number of solo kayaks are available to rent and will be reserved in advance on a first come, first served basis. Participants may also use their own non-motorized personal watercrafts. Paddleboarders are welcome. The event will take place rain or shine. Click here to register. Call 315.365.3588 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
