Date/Time: June 29th 4:30-7PM
Location: Cayuga Nature Center, 1420 Taughannock Blvd. Ithaca, NY
RSVP: Register at this link by June 28th
Details: Join us June 29th from 4:30 to 7:00 pm for a casual post-conference meet-up at the Cayuga Nature Center. We'll begin at the pavilion behind the Nature Center Lodge at 4:30 and take a short stroll to the six-story TreeTops tree house. Then we will return to the pavilion for drinks, nibblies, and conversation about climate education. We'll share some of the ways PRI is engaging in environmental monitoring at the Cayuga Nature Center and supporting schools in doing environmental monitoring on and near their campuses. But most of the program is about networking and relaxing. We will provide beer, wine, non-alcoholic drinks and some light snacks. The trail to TreeTops is short, but not ADA-accessible, but the pavilion can be accessible by car.
