Aug 5 5p - 8p Sunset Paddle on Onandaga Lake

The Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps will lead a recreational, 2-mile paddle along Onondaga Lake's recently restored western shoreline and wetlands to experience the autumn bird migration. 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. The event is sponsored by Honeywell, Ramboll, and Parsons.

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. Participants may also use their own non-motorized personal watercrafts. Paddleboarders are welcome. Click here to register.
