Inspired by her love for the Finger Lakes and the bioregional maps of the Pacific Northwest, author/designer/originator Sandy Wold envisioned this project following her graduate studies at SUNY Cortland where she specialized her studies in bioregionalism and wrote her thesis on how to integrate sustainability education into New York State standards and public education.  This project was sponsored by the Center for Environmental Sustainability (CES) and supported by a small grant from the Alternatives Federal Credit Union.  

The Cayuga Basin Bioregion Map (c2002), a region defined by its unique local flora and fauna, geology, and weather.  Many thanks for the generous logistical support of Wally Woods, retired corporate facilitator and cofounder of the CES, and thanks to the beautiful watercolor artwork of Camille Doucet.  Located in the Finger Lakes region in Central New York, the Cayuga Basin Bioregion is actually a subwatershed of the Oneida watershed and is further distinguished by its unique geologic formations, natural history, seasonal cycles, local economy, and historic sites (e.g., indigenous peoples, the Underground Railroad, and the Women's Suffrage Movement, ...). 

This poster map measures 22x28 inches and connects locals and visitors to the beauty, richness, and unique qualities of our bioregion.  This map makes a great gift for home, work, or classroom and looks great laminated, mounted on a plak, or matted and framed in gold-painted wood.  The second edition was printed in June 2010.  The original watercolor painting is now owned by the Paleontological Research Institution and is permanently displayed at the Cayuga Nature Center in Ithaca, NY.  

POSTERS AVAILABLE for sale by request and in Ithaca, NY: Wegmans, Autumn Leaves, Buffalo Books, the Sciencenter, Cayuga Nature Center, and the Paleontological Research Institution. Also, ask about fundraising opportunities available to sell posters to benefit local youth projects and trips.
