Free Yard Mapping Session at CCE-Tompkins

Wednesday June 26, 6:30-8:30 pm

Are you interested in helping to create more bird-friendly habitat in your neighborhood? Come to a free session on how to use an online program called YardMap, hosted by Professor Josh Cerra of the Cornell University Department of Landscape Architecture.

Professor Cerra will talk about the goals of YardWorks and how to get involved in the project.  He will demonstrate how to use the YardMap program, and laptop computers will be available for participants to map their own yards at the session, or you can bring your own.

The YardWorks project is a project partnership between the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology's YardMap program and Cornell Landscape Architecture, and in collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Extension.  YardWorks offers an opportunity to work with multiple landowners on coordinating larger networks of bird-friendly habitat at the scales of both their neighborhood and their yards.

The session is free but space is limited so please call 272-2292 to pre-register, or send an email to Chrys Gardener at cab69 at

Enter to win free landscaping plans for your neighborhood!

YardWorks is currently looking for two communities within the state of New York to work with our landscape design studios to develop goals and plans for more habitat-friendly communities, and are hosting a competition for interested neighborhoods. It is very easy to submit!

Each neighborhood must have at least five participants willing to work with a professor-student team to create schematic plans and design concepts for their property and the surrounding area. The contest deadline has been extended to Monday July 22.<><>
