As part of the ‘Lake Series’ program for the Skaneateles Historical Society, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Onondaga County (CCE) will discuss the geological and ecological dynamics that helped create Skaneateles Lake and the surrounding watershed. Hydropower, mills and lumber have played vital roles in shaping development and maintaining open space. How does water flow within the watershed and what factors affect water quality today?
CCE offers training to volunteers and citizen scientists interested in monitoring boat launches and scuba diving for invasive species, landscaping for water quality, and biological, chemical and physical water quality assessments. In 2012, we offered programs open to the public, on topics such as: Waterfront Erosion Control, Landscaping for Water Quality, Well Testing, Maintenance and Septic System Management, and iMapInvasives Training.
