Onondaga Earth Corps and Cornell Cooperative Extension

Save the Rain has a goal of planting 8,500 trees in the City of Syracuse by 2018. As part of this program, Save the Rain has partnered with Onondaga Earth Corps (OEC) and Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) to train and hire youth and young adults to lead in planting and maintaining hundreds of trees throughout the City of Syracuse. This program provides job training and employment experience while empowering local youth to be leaders and good stewards of the environment in their community.

OEC and CCE also help to coordinate community tree planting events throughout the Fall and Spring. Be sure to check this website and our social media pages to see what upcoming events we have planned!

OEC also maintains green infrastructure projects located throughout the City.
