Seneca Meadows Landfill earns DU conservation award

Ducks Unlimited recently presented Seneca Meadows Landfill in Seneca Falls, New York, with the Ducks Unlimited Sponsor in Perpetuity Award. The award recognizes outstanding contributions to waterfowl conservation Seneca Meadows made in its partnership with Seneca Falls Chapter of the Ducks Unlimited.The partnership was established to promote environmental conservation. Ducks Unlimited approached the landfill to gain support for local conservation programming, and one of the ideas proposed was to engage youth activities outdoors and utilize this approach to address environmental conservation needs for future generations.Members of Ducks Unlimited’s youth program, Greenwings, placed duck nesting boxes on the Seneca Meadows Wetlands Preserve. The efforts paid off this year when Greenwings found hatched eggs in the nesting boxes.“Seneca Meadows has a proven track record of protecting the environment for our future generations and our youth Greenwings program helps carry these ideals into the future,” said area Ducks Unlimited chairman Mike Ernst.To join Ducks Unlimited, contact Ernst at (315) 568-6710.
