Catherine will also discuss the early ecology of Onondaga Lake and the surrounding areas based on historical and other records that were kept. Along with the unique and rich animal and plant life around the lake and surrounding areas. She will also review the Indigenous people that lived here for thousands of years following seasonal patterns of abundance of plants, fish, and animals.
