poster information


Flying on moonlight
above Onondaga's waves
Eagle's wings dancing

To see the Lake go from devastation to growing and bringing wildlife, especially like eagles, is just inspiring to see. It just makes you want to write about it and tell people how beautiful the world can actually still be, and how it still can come back from the hand that originally destroyed it...

I grew up in the Syracuse area and always had an appreciation for Central New York's wildlife and scenery. When I was a young girl, I remember how polluted Onondaga lake was. Many of the lake's beautiful creatures began disappearing and the water was getting full of unnatural particles. I was a very sensitive and nature loving child, so seeing the destruction of a natural place close to my home made me sad. As an adult, I am happy to see how much our community has worked to restore Onondaga Lake to better health. It was especially incredible to see native creatures—like eagles—begin to live and breed near the water again. While illustrating this poem, I wanted the design to embody joy, community, and the magic of the natural world. As the eagle dances through the clouds—catching fish and soaring freely—the city of Syracuse looks over the swirling waters of the lake.
