Lawns and Landscapes for Protecting the Lake

  • Thursday, April 18, 2024, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Join us for a program focused on lawns. Frank Rossi from Cornell University will talk about how lawn-owners can implement lawncare practices that protect water quality. For the more adventurous, Krissy Boys from Cornell Botanic Gardens will share about their native lawn project to inspire property owners to transition from a traditional lawn to a native lawn.

There will be plenty of time for questions and answers and discussion at the end.

This program is part of a collaborative series that will focus on several types of landscaping practices that help protect Skaneateles Lake water quality. Stay tuned for additional programs to be announced soon!
