Three days was all it took.

Saturday morning, June 3, I arrived at Collins Park in Scotia with my wife, Kat. As the rain fell, we met up with Laura and Matt Brown, residents of Scotia. We counted almost 200 Canada geese, the very ones sentenced to death in the coming weeks at the behest of the Scotia village board... CLICK HERE TO READ THE WHOLE STORY...

Population stabilization program

If you enjoy kayaking or just being outdoors, you can have a lot of fun while doing something worthwhile.

  • Phase 1:

    The Geese are currently nesting - The first step in population stabilization is egg oiling.
    This will be carried out from now through early May. We provide training and this is done as a group on the weekends. Please call 518-370-4009 or email brownm@nycap.rr.com if you would like to help.

  • Phase 2:

    After nesting is over we will be begin a 3 day intensive hazing program. No additional volunteers will be needed for this phase.

  • Phase 3:

    This is the fun part! We will be begin our hazing program. We have a trained Border Collie and handlers. Volunteers are needed to patrol land and water.
