Cayuga Lake Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Monitoring

Cayuga Outrigger is committed to being environmental ambassadors. In this capacity, we participate in monitoring cyanobacteria blooms in Cayuga Lake through visual observation and sampling. This community science effort contributes to the Community Science Institute’s Water Quality Database, which is available here: http://www.database.communityscience.org/hab.

Thanks to our HAB monitoring leader, Susanna Pearce!

Annual Stewart Park Waterfront Clean Up

Cayuga Outrigger members help to clean up the waterfront Stewart Park. If you would like to join the volunteering effort, please see events at: https://www.friendsofstewartpark.org/events.

Cass Park Clean Up

Cayuga Outrigger members help to clean up the waterfront at Cass Park. In 2024, the bushes along the walkway were trimmed so community members can see and enjoy the natural beauty of Cayuga Lake. A lot of trash was picked up, and 4-5 needles were recovered to make the park a more beautiful and safer place for recreation.

Cornell Canoe Fest 2023

Cayuga Outrigger participated in the inaugural celebration of indigenous culture. The event aims to introduce paddling sports to marginalized communities that have primarily been excluded from the outdoor recreation economy.
