Onondaga County residents are wanted to participate in the CommuniTree Stewards volunteer program! This FREE training and service program was born out of the Labor Day Storm, which had catastrophic effects on the urban tree canopy in Syracuse. Stewards learn the basics of young tree care and maintenance in four classes taught by local experts and hone their skills over the summer, choosing from several service projects. Classes begin in May. Click here for more information.
Join us for an in-depth fruit tree grafting workshop that includes hands-on demonstration of the whip and tongue technique. John Reynolds of Daring Drake Farms is the instructor. Participants will take home two grafted fruit trees. Space is limited, so register today! More information here.
The Cornell Local Roads Program Roadside Drainage and Stormwater Workshop on March 26th in Niles has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience.
We are currently looking into options to reschedule this event in late summer-early fall 2015.
Any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Blazing Stars 4-H club has recently done Community Service at the Marcellus Christmas Tree Lighting in December. I had the chance to dress up like Frosty the Snowman and help with the Tree Lightning Ceremonies. We helped children with activities and crafts at the American Legion hall and we did many other things to help with activities that were going on around the town.
This is one of the times our club has volunteered to help in the community. Community service is one of the things that I have had the opportunity to do in 4-H. While being in 4-H I have learned so much and it means a lot to me to be part of our club. It has given me the chance to meet new people, learn new things, and help our community in many ways.
