Working with hundreds of Central New Yorkers, Honeywell has cleaned up former factory sites, built the infrastructure needed for dredging, enhanced the lakeshore with native plants chosen by the community, and begun lake cleanup operations.

The progress that has been made is due in large measure to the talent, creativity, and dedication of so many who reside and work in the local community – from the regulators and elected officials to the academic, environmental, nonprofit and business communities to Honeywell’s partners and workers.

The Central New York community has important ties to Onondaga Lake.

Jobs At The Salt Museum

Probably one of the most fun things on our field trip were the bikes and salt museum. The women working at the salt museum were very nice and helpful to picture what salt mining was like and how valuable it was. The fun activity she let us do was be characters from the old days and the scrips had some very interesting history along with them. For example how father Lemoyne was one of the men that discovered salt. And while we were ridding the bikes there were some useful sings on the history and what we use the trails and lake for.
