Conservation Field Days

The Conservation Field Days concept is simple; bring together a student’s excitement for the outdoors, environmental professionals willing to share their expertise, and a casual “fair-like” structure for them to share information and learn from. The goal of this event is to teach students about important environmental issues while having fun in one of our most beautiful area parks. This year, instructors came from agencies such as the University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester Institute of Technology, Monroe County Department of Environmental Science, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, and many more. Topics ranged from classic conservation topics, including renewable energy and recycling, to eye opening sessions, such as outdoor scrap art and hospital waste management.

At our 29th annual Conservation Field Days, over 1378 students from 16 different schools within Monroe County were in attendance.We would like to thank all of the students and school districts who attended, with special thanks going to all of the instructors and volunteers that helped make the 2017 Conservation Field Days event such a great success!
