The CLCPA establishes a goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, achieved through a balance of GHG emission sources and sinks. As such, the annual Statewide Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report will include an assessment of net emissions. This presentation will provide background information on net accounting and highlight key considerations as well as areas for future improvement. Topics will include carbon sequestration, biogenic and anthropogenic emissions, and carbon neutrality in the context of governmental GHG inventory protocols. Time will be provided to answer questions and take public input on discussed material.

DEC will host a virtual session to provide information and answer questions about a recently completed habitat management plan for Three Mile Bay Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in the towns of West Monroe and Constantia, Oswego County.

When: Monday, March 29, and will begin at 5:30 p.m.

What: The event will feature an hour-long presentation about the WMA’s history, habitat goals, and planned management actions, followed by a question-and-answer period. 

Where: The presentation will be recorded and made available to the public on DEC’s website after the session. Follow this link for information about how to join the live virtual session. 

The 3,908-acre Three Mile Bay WMA is adjacent to Three Mile Bay on Oneida Lake's north shore. The WMA was originally established to develop high-quality waterfowl habitat for conservation and wildlife-associated recreation. The property is designated as a Bird Conservation Area and waterfowl are abundant, especially during spring migration. Several threatened and special concern species are known to breed in the WMA.

Management activities at the site are consistent with the Young Forest Initiative and include active forest management and improvements to grasslands and wetlands to encourage use by an even greater diversity of wildlife while enhancing public access. The full Three Mile Bay habitat management plan with specific goals is available on DEC’s website, along with the link to join the virtual information session and view the recording.
