Honeywell Summer Science Week at the Museum of Science and Technology, or the MoST, is underway this week. It began with water sampling and plant and wildlife monitoring, with a special boat navigating the waters of Onondaga Lake.
“I’m happy to be with you today for the Honeywell Most Summer science week. I’m going to help you identify birds today.”
70 middle schoolers from around the area were on board the boat… identifying birds…
“look at him! Look out for the ostrich and the eagles”
People might want to page through the annual report for Vera House just released today...not to find financial or business information, but to find a wider range of services than many people know the offer. Executive Director Randi Bregman would like to have people broaden their perspective should they ever need any kind of help for themselves, family or friends regarding relationship violence or sexual abuse.
The last time we brought you stories about the Erie Canal we were following bicyclists making the journey from Buffalo to Albany. This Fourth of July weekend we found the story of a man who’s traversing the same route – on foot. Scott 'Atlas' Armstrong is a veteran who injured his back in the Army…but finds he can hike long distances. And he finds the Canal can be an entry for others into hiking because it’s mostly flat.
The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is hoping visitors get in the spirit of their centennial celebration by supporting some of the animals’ native habitats. Friends of the Zoo has launched a fundraising effort called “100 cents for 100 years” to conserve endangered species. In exchange for a donation of a dollar or more, guests will receive a unique zoo wrist band. Friends of the Zoo President Janet Agostini says they want to do greater good beyond our borders.
