    411027 - Habitat Restoration Course

    A unique opportunity to learn about ecological principles while working in multi-age teams to restore wildlife habitat in and around Pittsford! Through project-based learning activities, you will learn plant identification skills, as well as basic horticulture and arboriculture. In addition to planting trees and other native perennials, we’ll explore topics such as the carbon cycle, plant biology, local wildlife, and invasive species in the fun and friendly atmosphere! We will also use scientific tools to measure our impact on biodiversity and occasionally stop to smell the rudbeckia. We may also practice science communication skills in an effort to educate the community on local wildlife conservation practices. The first two classes on 9/11 & 9/18 will be held classroom style; subsequent classes will be held outdoors at Great Embankment Park.

    Meet at Upper Devil’s Bathtub Parking Lot - Pond Rd

    Mendon Ponds Park is one of the country’s most unique parks and it is right in our backyard! Herman LeRoy Fairchild, Professor Emeritus in the Geology Department at the University of Rochester, first advocated in 1926 for the "Mendon Kames" area to be developed into a state or county park. Two years later, Monroe County began the first of what would become many land purchases to ultimately create the glacial topographic wonder that is known today as Mendon Ponds Park. The Fairchild Walking Tours will cover the history of the park, its glacial formation and geological features such as kettles, kames and eskers. Join us to explore this geological wonder! Small groups will be formed. “Hidden in Plain Sight” is relatively flat. "Mero-What?" and includes steep, rocky inclines. Must be in good physical health. 90-minute Tours. Age 16 & up. Registration is required.
