Many people enjoy watching birds at their backyard feeders. But did you know your observations can contribute to the study of bird populations and movement? Noting what you see and reporting your observations can enhance your enjoyment while adding to our collective knowledge of birds.

This calendar provides a listing of all DEC-sponsored events that are open to the public. You can click on any event in the calendar to view additional details about the event. Note that the events at environmental education centers will only display in the region in which they are located, even though they serve residents from adjacent areas.
