BIRDING-BY-SNOWSHOE

Join Five Rivers, the Audubon Society of the Capital Region and the Hudson Mohawk Bird Club for a special birding-by-snowshoe outing. Meet at the Visitor Center at 9:00 AM for a brief introduction to snowshoeing. Then, strap on the waffle stompers and go over the meadow and through the woods in search of winter species. The program is geared for birding/snowshoeing novices. Space is limited. Snowshoe rentals are provided by Friends of Five Rivers at $5 per pair; free to Friends members. Please call the Center at 518-475-0291 by Wednesday, February 21 to register. At least 6 inches of snow cover is required. If there is insufficient snow, we will go on foot. If the weather is severe, this program may be canceled.

NOTE: We are unable to accommodate organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) at our public programs. Please call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to schedule a separate program for your group.

Audubon Society of the Capital Region: ANNUAL MEETING AND OPEN HOUSE

This family-friendly, open to the public event will start with announcements and election of officers, followed by a presentation. Tom Lake, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation naturalist, educator and editor, will present “Changing Ecology of the Hudson River Flyway.” His program will illustrate how the flyway has been critical to migratory birds for at least 12,000 years and how birds have adapted to the changing environment. During the presentation, there will be activities for younger folks. Light refreshments will be available and exhibits will show what your local Audubon chapter is doing and how you can participate.
