Onondaga County is proposing to extend the promised loop-the-lake trail to Murphy’s Island where many bald eagles migrate to every year. This project will cost about two million dollars and it cuts through the eagles habitat.“They are going to be cutting a lot of trees to build this trail, which impacts the eagles route. And when you also build a trail and people get used to coming on it they will come on it when it’s closed.” The Department of Environment Conservation has a public hearing scheduled at the OnCenter today at six p-m.
