AMC Hudson Mohawk Chapter: SOCIAL, MEETING AND OUTING 

 The Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) will be hosting their winter event at Five Rivers. Please arrive with a dish to share a little before 11:45 AM, to allow for setup. After lunch, we will discuss topics related to encouraging member diversity and young members. An AMC hike leader will lead a hike on snowshoes or not depending on snow cover. At least 6 inches of snow is required. The hike will start around 1:30 PM. Please dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear, including winter-traction cleats, if needed. Snowshoe rentals are $5 per pair; free for Friends members. The public is welcome to attend any part of this event.

* 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.
