For some of these high school students, it's the first time they've been outside New York City!  They will spend all week at ESF, doing everything from examining the water quality in local lakes and ponds to looking at what insects could be found in an area--and of course, learning how to fish!

Today the solar-powered GRoW Home, designed and built by a collab between University of Buffalo and SUNY ESF Department of Landscape Architecture, is being moved outside for its final stage of construction. When it's complete, the entire house will be shipped to California so that it can compete in the prestigious Solar Decathlon, an invite-only competition held by the US Department of Energy only once every two years.

Our recent "Cans on Campus" food drive was a huge success! We contributed over 340 lbs. of food products to the community, thanks in part to one anonymous donor who made a very generous donation. It’s heartwarming to be part of such a generous campus community!

You could say that the new harvester was made just for ESF.  New Holland designed and built the new coppice header in collaboration with ESF's Willow Project, specifically to harvest woody biomass.  The new design has now gone into production and will be available on the market--providing a tool to significantly reduce the time and money involved in biomass harvesting, just as planned.  It'll be a boon to our researchers as they continue to work on ways to lower the cost of #biomass production.

Nothing beats a green roof walk-through with an expert like Don Leopold, but our faculty tend to be busy people. Thanks to Tim Toland, Associate Professor in ESF's Department of Landscape Architecture, now visitors will be able to hold their own self-guided tours using the new signs on the Gateway #greenroof!
