Saturday of Service

All incoming students learn ESF’s mission first-hand by participating in this annual community service event. Students complete service projects like brush removal, trash pick-up and stream cleanup in coordination with the City of Syracuse Parks and Recreation and Onondaga County Parks, as well as the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. 

First-Year Service Projects

As part of the First-Year Experience, students learn to live by ESF’s mission to “promote the leadership necessary for the stewardship of both the natural and designed environments.” Each student completes a service project such as taking youth on nature walks, chemistry demonstrations, and tree planting in urban and rural environments.
