To the members of PLANTCNY,
Please see the following message, sent to us from Carl Schimenti, Cornell Turfgrass Program Manager, regarding a number of webinars and virtual education programs that Cornell is sponsoring and making available to our members. If you would like additional information regarding these programs, please contact Carl directly; you’ll find his contact information at the end of this email.
Thanks, and stay well!
I’m reaching out today on behalf of the Cornell Turfgrass program. In lieu of the current situation re: Covid 19, we felt it would be beneficial to provide virtual forms of extension and education for our turf folks here in NY. This would also provide a forum for people to ask questions and also interact in a way that at least partially fills the social void that has been left open for many.
We've decided to break them up into 3 separate webinars on different days. One for golf turf, one for sports turf, and one for lawn/landscape (which you all may have audiences that are interested in). We are hoping to keep these relatively short, around 15 mins, and then open up for questions at the end.
I've put down the webinar links for each recurring webinar below, and the link will stay the same every week. Attendees will need to sign-in with an e-mail address before each session, but no need to register and of course no registration fee.
Golf Turf: Every Wednesday, starting 3/25 at 10am. Link: https://cornell.zoom.us/j/599896323
Sports Turf: Every other Thursday, starting 3/26 at 10am. Link: https://cornell.zoom.us/j/968527067
Lawn and Landscape: Every other Friday, starting 3/27 at 10am. Link: https://cornell.zoom.us/j/790738453
We'd love for you to spread the word to anyone you feel is interested!
Also of note: we may record and post webinar recordings to YouTube after the live session as we understand many people won't be able to attend every week.
We are looking forward to it!
