The New York State Energy and Research Development Authority (NYSERDA) is leading the development of offshore wind on behalf of the State. Throughout 2017, NYSERDA is conducting extensive stakeholder outreach and directing more than twenty studies and surveys to ensure offshore wind is developed responsibly. This work will culminate in the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan, to be released by the end of 2017. Central to the Master Plan is a concerted effort to gather input from various stakeholder groups, including commercial, for-hire, and recreational fisheries. As part of its public outreach, NYSERDA invites you to several public open houses in August. Details are outlined below.

The purpose of these open houses is to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to learn about the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan. During these open houses, NYSERDA would also like to learn about the stakeholders of New York in an effort to understand and deconflict offshore wind development and operation.

Any member of the public is welcome to attend. NYSERDA and NYSDEC representatives will be available for discussion.

Citizen Science: Monarch Larva Monitoring Project (MLMP)

Take part in ongoing research on monarch butterflies. For more than 15 years, data collected at Five Rivers has been contributed to this continent-wide citizen science project conducted through the University of Minnesota. The goal of the MLMP is to better understand how and why monarch populations vary, with a focus on their distribution and abundance during the breeding season in North America. Volunteers in the United States, Canada and Mexico aid in conserving monarchs and advance understanding of butterfly ecology and migration in general. Meet at the Nature’s Accessible Backyard Trail kiosk, at the south end of our parking lot. Go to www.mlmp.org to learn about the project.
