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.
