The leafless landscape of winter reveals a host of summer’s secrets. Join center staff as we scour the puckerbrush for abandoned bird nests to study who might have made them and who might have moved in since! A cursory winter inspection of some of the center’s bluebird boxes may also prove revealing. Plans and tips for making and erecting bird houses will be provided.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.
