Join in this summer’s Living Environment Institute (LEI), Wild about Wetlands, as we explore these varied and sometimes highly specialized habitats. Wetlands are accessible to teachers and educators throughout New York State. They include river shores, vernal pools, swamps, streams, salt marshes and more. We’ll view wetlands across disciplines, seeking to use them as a catalyst for student interest and learning. Chris Bowser, recipient of U.S. EPA’s Environmental Quality Award, will join staff from Five Rivers Environmental Education Center to lead investigations of a variety of wetland habitats. During a field experience, LEI participants will learn first-hand why his programs in the Hudson River watershed engage thousands of New York students and hundreds of educators annually. Bring home valuable ideas, standards-based curriculum and activities, and connect with a network of peers.

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.

* 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.

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. We welcome people with disabilities to all of our programs. Please call the contact number ahead of time to let us know your specific needs and we will be happy to learn how we can best serve you.
