Edward L Rose Conservancy again participated in Earth Fest, sponsored by Earth Day Southern at SUNY Broome College, one of the longest-running celebrations of Earth Day in the nation and a respected institution in the southern Tier of New York..
The Conservancy provided a display table and information on our local environment and how we help to protect natural areas with conservation easements.
The Conservancy involvement in Earth Fest helps support public education and awareness of environmental concerns, and gives a face to the role the Conservancy plays in understanding and protecting the local environment.
Board members greeted visitors along with Cory Snyder, a student from Cornell University and 2016 intern working on a project with Edward L Rose Conservancy. Cory interacted with interested families at Earth Fest. Cory answered questions about the local environment and brought some interesting amphibians.
