Recent Projects

Public Park Conservation Enhancement

We partnered with the Town/Village of East Rochester to plant a 550′ x 15′ riparian buffer along an eroding section of Irondequoit Creek in Legion Eyer Park, along with planting a pollinator meadow in a section of the park. The buffer will help protect water quality for years to come!

Spotted Lanternfly Monitoring

We partnered with SUNY Brockport to install and monitor 16 spotted lanternfly circle traps around eight Monroe County parks throughout the summer and fall. No SLF were found in 2022!                      


Urban Agriculture

We partnered with Asbury First United Methodist Church and Cornell Cooperative Extension to create a community garden consisting of 10 raised garden beds on Asbury’s property. The garden produced over 250 lbs of produce which was distributed to their church community and donated to local food programs!
