Also, as part of the day's activities, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) will hold a demonstration of state-of-the-art drone technology the state plans to use in western parts of the Southern Tier this summer to track down abandoned, decades-old oil and gas wells to prevent methane leaks.

The drone demonstration was scheduled to take place at 2 p.m.
