The CNY Section of American Chemical Society in partnership with the Otisco Lake Preservation Association (OLPA), Cornell Cooperative Extension, Otisco Lake Community Association, and Amberations is hosting its 3rd annual Earth Day Event. We will be meeting at the Amber Community Center at 9:30am where stream ecology will be discussed before sampling a stream for aquatic organisms and cleaning up trash and debris along Otisco Valley Road.

Directions from Syracuse:
Starting January 1, 2014, the Syracuse Section is now formally recognized as the Central New York Section of the American Chemical Society, or CNY ACS for short.
Now our name matches our mission as we continue to be a resource for chemistry and science in the CNY area. Here is to a great 2014!
