May is a great time to green up the lawn and garden. There are alternatives to conventional pesticides that will help to promote healthy lawns and gardens and reduce pest infestations, while keeping chemicals out of ground and surface waters. Join us for an indoor study on how you can use non-chemical means to promote a healthy landscape and make your green lawn greener. For more information, call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291.

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.
