Past events
The bioblitz was a huge successful, we had around 20 members coming out to Onondaga Lake helping out in the herps, birds, bats and mammals portions. There were around 400 species recorded in total.

The elk camping trip crew had an amazing time. There were many elk present in the area that were really close and they displayed a lot of pre-rutting display.

The duck banding trips were also a lot of fun and educational. There were around 20 ducks between the 5 traps and the weather was crisp and clear. Everyone had a chance to handle and band ducks under the supervision of the refuge staff.

Professor Cohen’s presentation
Professor Cohen came to the meeting and gave a presentation on his wildlife career and gave some funny anecdotes also well as useful tips for a future professional career.
