Hi Cayuga Birders, A couple of folks asked for more info about our work on Wednesday down at Lighthouse Point Woods.
Details: Meet around 9:30am at the west end of Willow Ave near the City's Newman Golf Course Pro shop. Bring gloves, and a shovel if you have one. A weed wrench is even better if you happen to own one (don't worry if you don't). Please consider bringing a bottle of water, bug repellent, and maybe sunscreen. I likely will be there with the New Roots School kids until early afternoon, but please feel free to leave when you want to. Background: Since early 2018, the Cayuga Bird Club has been collaborating with the City of Ithaca and the Cornell Botanic Garden Natural Area staff on improving bird habitat in the seasonally flooded forests at the south end of Cayuga Lake (specifically Lighthouse Point Woods and Renwick Woods). We have been removing non-native, invasive species and planting native trees and shrubs. We have made progress with the help of many individuals and other groups from our local communities. Any and all volunteers are very welcome to join us for an hour, a day, or for the rest of their lives as we build a place for birds and birders to thrive. Thanks Jody Jody W.
