Watchable Wildlife: BLUEBIRDS

Our New York State Bird, the eastern bluebird, is recovering, thanks to the bluebird nest box program. Learn more about this beautiful bird and its amazing recovery in this presentation on bluebirds and other nest box inhabitants. If weather permits we will then venture outside to look for eastern bluebirds and other nest box inhabitants on Five Rivers nest box trails.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.

Citizen Science: TURKEYS

Turkeys have made an amazing recovery in New York State but recent surveys suggest that their populations have begun to decline. The reasons for this decline are not fully understood, so the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is conducting a Summer Wild Turkey Sighting Survey. We hope that this data will help us understand the reasons for the decline. Join us for this 45-minute indoor program to learn more about wild turkeys and how you can help participate in this survey.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.

* 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.
