The state Department of Environmental Conservation plans to host a virtual session providing information and answering questions about a recently completed habitat management plan for the Three Mile Bay Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in the towns of West Monroe and Constantia.
“The diversity of wildlife habitat on Three Mile Bay Wildlife Management Area offers exciting opportunities to observe both resident and migratory birds, including a number of rare species,” said Region 7 Director Matthew Marko. “DEC is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing these habitats to benefit declining wildlife species and popular game animals while continuing to provide outdoor recreation opportunities, and we encourage the Oneida Lake community to join us virtually on March 29.”
The session is scheduled for Monday, March 29, and will begin at 5:30 p.m. The event features an hour-long presentation about the WMA’s history, habitat goals, and planned management actions, followed by a question-and-answer period. The presentation will be recorded and made available to the public on DEC’s website after the session.

To answer a reader’s questions from yesterday’s announcement, Lake Apparel is locally owned and operated, has items in stock, and is a permanent store so you can order any time. For those of you who have not read the previous post, Lake Apparel is a new site sponsor that manufactures a variety of Oneida Lake-themed products like t-shirts, hoodies, koozies, and hats.
For those interested, the wind machine has fired up and by late morning ice has begun stacking up along the north shore.
