Join the CCE of Broome County for our educational series on the wetlands of Broome County! Wetlands are vital habitats and provide numerous services to humans including flood control and mitigation, pollution control, and water retention. They are also home to countless plant and animal species which have adapted to their unique conditions. We will be traveling to two locations in Broome County to view and discuss a variety of different wetland habitats, their functions, and their associated species.
Tuesday, July 11th - Upper Lisle Park 6:30pm-7:30pm
Tuesday, July 18th - Chenango Valley State Park 6:30pm-7:30pm*
We will be focusing on marshes, swamps, rivers, and reservoirs at Upper Lisle Park and springs, bogs, kettles, and ponds at Chenango Valley State Park. We encourage participants to attend both dates as we will see different wetland habitat types at each location, but it is not required.
We are happy to offer this program free of charge to community members of all ages. Any youth under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
*In cooperation with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation - Central Region.
