TACNY Junior Café Scientifique: Habitat Restoration @ Museum of Science & Technology

Apr 15 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

Mark Arrigo, CPM, a project manager and principle scientist at Parsons Corp., will lead a discussion aimed at middle school students about habitat restoration from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, April 15, at the MOST, 500 S. Franklin St., Syracuse.

The cleanup of Onondaga Lake is also restoring approximately 35 acres of important wetland habitat along 1.2 miles of shoreline within and adjacent to the lake. The restoration of these wetlands is bringing back a critical habitat that once surrounded most of the lake, but was lost long ago. These nearshore wetland habitats are used by a diversity of fish and wildlife, including northern pike.  Over a quarter million individual plants from more than 100 native species will be placed in these new wetlands.

Junior Café Scientifique is sponsored by the Technology Alliance of Central New York (TACNY), and usually held on the third Saturday of the month during the school year at the MOST. A light breakfast is provided. Participants must be accompanied by an adult. The event is free, but TACNY asks that you RSVP to jrcafe@tacny.org. After the event, participants are welcome to explore the museum at half-price: $6 for adults and $5 for children 2-11.
