The 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. Last year, instructors came from the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge, Rochester Institute of Technology, Seneca Park Zoo, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, and more! Topics ranged from the usual conservation subjects, like renewable energy and agriculture to eye opening sessions such as endangered species and pollution.
