What’s the connection between Capital Region birds and the coffee in your cup? Explore this question with Brew the Roost, a series of interactive quilts that highlight the seasonal migration of birds and the importance of shade-grown coffee in maintaining biodiversity in coffee-growing regions. Quilts will be updated every two weeks as the fall migration progresses. 

This family-friendly art exhibit, created by local artist Katherine Lynn Bierman, will be on view in the visitor center through Thanksgiving.

Guided Hike: VLOMANKILL TRAIL

Before the hectic time of year begins, take a break, slow down, and appreciate the beauty of the natural world all around you. The Vlomankill Trail is lovely in the fall as it guides you along the stream and through the forest. Several animals have been spotted along this peaceful stretch of Five Rivers. What will we see or hear today?

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