Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps Paddle
August 10 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps will lead a 2-mile paddle along Nine Mile Creek and Onondaga Lake’s recently restored wetlands on Wednesday, August 10 from 6 – 8 p.m. to explore the area’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 experts from the Montezuma Audubon Center and Onondaga Audubon will discuss how enhanced wetlands along the lakeshore are supporting the Onondaga Lake watershed and its value as an Important Bird Area. Participants will launch from the Honeywell Canoe and Kayak Launch on Pumphouse Road in Syracuse, NY. The event is sponsored by Honeywell and RES.
A limited number of tandem canoes and solo kayaks are available to rent and will be reserved in advance on a first-come, first-served basis. Life vests and paddles are included with the boat rental. Participants may also use their own non-motorized personal watercraft. Paddleboarders are welcome.
