Giving Back

Whether it’s participating with the community at the many worthy fundraising events, or aiding the local fire department with equipment procurement, Seneca Meadows understands that actively participating in the community is just as important as maintaining our outstanding track record of safety and environmental stewardship.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton Students partner with Cornell Cooperative Extension and Seneca Meadows on recycling plastic bags.
With a $1,500 grant from the Seneca Meadows Landfill, Waterloo middle school students turned an environmental vision into reality. Composting lunch scraps and leaves, and recycling schoolroom trash was not enough for these ecologically conscious kids; the big picture for their “green” dream included a courtyard garden at the school. After many hours of dusty labor, their garden was planted and landscaped, and now brings new beauty and environmental benefits to their school.

Days of Service


Freshmen from Hobart & William Smith Colleges spent a Saturday morning in late August with staff from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the NYS DEC collecting native wetland plant seed at the Seneca Meadows Wetlands Preserve in Seneca Falls for planting at the Montezuma Wetlands Complex. The students were participating in the Days of Service, an initiative of the Center for Community Engagement and Service Learning at the colleges.
