Kaitlin Fello and Maura Toole will present the association's "Lake Friendly Living" program. SLPWA is a partner in the Lake Friendly Living Coalition, which encompasses nine of the Finger Lakes. Birds and other wildlife depend on these lakes and their watersheds for food, raising young, and annual spring and fall migrations. And more than 100,000 residents use Seneca Lake as a primary water source. Formed in 1990, SLPWA is committed to preserving and protecting Seneca Lake through scientific research, community partnerships, and public education. The all-volunteer, nonprofit organization studies Seneca Lake and its tributaries, informing the public about contamination, invasive species, lake levels, and methods to improve lake quality. Chemung Valley Audubon events are free and open to all. One of 27 chapters in New York State, its purpose is to encourage the study, enjoyment, and protection of birds and other wildlife, and to promote educational lectures, programs, and field trips.
