    David Scott,
    Sorry to get back to you so late about your question, the site is still in its beginning stages and we are still working on format and content. Please check out some of the other pages as we are just getting more posts with calander infomation and other updates. As for projects we are just starting the search for new places that could benefit from our help, we have several sites to be considered Onondaga Creek, Butternut Creek, Limestone Creek is one we worked on a few years back in the town of Manlius, Mill Run Park section and it still has another phase or two to be completed. Nine Mile is always in need of stream cleanups and we just finished a Earth Day stream cleanup of Furnace Brook on Saturday in the city Elmwood Park section. Our next chapter meeting will be stream side on Nine Mile Creek to review our plantings from last year as well as fish a bit, meeting starts 5:00 at the new parking lot off 174 just past Jakes Fly Shop hope to see you there and discuss some of our other projects.
