The Onondaga Lake shoreline and wetlands are teeming with migratory songbirds, birds of prey, marsh birds, and shorebirds this time of year. Join Audubon’s Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps for a leisurely, 1-mile stroll along the West Shore Trail to explore some of the 90-acres of restored habitats, the birds that have returned to these habitats, and learn why Onondaga Lake is an Audubon New York Important Bird Area. A limited number of binoculars and field guides are available, so please bring your own. The event will take place rain or shine. Facial coverings will be required and we will follow physical distancing guidelines. Fee: $5/child, $10/adult, $25/family. Call 315.365.3588 or email email@example.com with questions. The event is sponsored by Honeywell, Ramboll, and Parsons. Click here to register.
The 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 organization was founded in 2012 by Honeywell in partnership with Montezuma Audubon Center and Onondaga Audubon and is now an Audubon New York program. Additional Corps supporters include Parsons, Ramboll, Anchor QEA, Bond Schoeneck & King, Applied Ecological Services, Koester Associates, Jim and Juli Boeheim Foundation, and the Central New York Community Foundation.
