The event is tomorrow, Thursday 6/26 from 6-8PM. From 6:45 - 7:15 there will be a presentation from the folks at the center. For the rest of the time folks can browse the exhibits at the center, network and enjoy some light refreshments. The event is free and open to everyone so there's no excuse not to come.

Where: Onondaga Lake Visitors Center
When: Thursday, June 26th, 6PM - 8PM
Here's some information we're passing on from the folks at the cleanup visitors center:
The Onondaga Lake cleanup is making terrific progress; Onondaga Lake is a story of growth and renewal. Wildlife is returning to restored wetlands and Honeywell is planning to finish lake dredging at the end of this year, a year ahead of schedule. Capping and habitat enhancements will be completed in 2016.
The hard work of creative, knowledgeable, and dedicated professionals and members of the Central New York academic community has been critical to the success of this project.
We are proud of the historical milestones we have achieved and hope you share our excitement. Join Believe in Syracuse on Thursday evening from 6 – 8 p.m. or, you can learn more by visiting our website at www.lakecleanup.com.
