Take part in ongoing research on monarch butterflies. For more than 15 years, data collected at Five Rivers has been contributed to this continent-wide citizen science project conducted through the University of Minnesota. The goal of the MLMP is to better understand how and why monarch populations vary, with a focus on their distribution and abundance during the breeding season in North America. Volunteers in the United States, Canada and Mexico aid in conserving monarchs and advance understanding of butterfly ecology and migration in general. Meet at the Nature’s Accessible Backyard Trail kiosk, at the south end of our parking lot. Go to www.mlmp.org to learn about the project.

Background: The Federal Clean Water Act requires states to periodically assess and report on the quality of waters in their state. Section 303(d) of the Act also requires states to identify Impaired Waters, where specific designated uses are not fully supported. For these Impaired Waters, states must consider the development of a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) or other more appropriate strategy to reduce the input of the specific pollutant(s) that restrict waterbody uses, in order to restore and protect such uses.

Information: Copies of the Draft 2018 New York State Section 303(d) List and/or the Assessment and Listing Methodologies are available on the NYSDEC website. Copies of the List and Methodologies can also be obtained by contacting the NYSDEC Bureau of Watershed Assessment and Management by mail at 625 Broadway, 4th Floor, Albany, NY 12233-3502, or by phone at 518-402-8179. An electronic version of these documents can also be requested by email to 4pwlinfo@dec.ny.gov 

Public comments regarding the Section 303(d) List and/or the Assessment and Listing Methodologies should be mailed to the Bureau of Watershed Assessment and Management at the above address, or emailed to 4pwlinfo@dec.ny.gov

Join us for this summer’s Living Environment Institute (LEI), as we explore Marvelous Migrations on land, water and air. Migration is a relevant topic for educators everywhere. It is an exciting topic for students and teachers alike. For three days, LEI participants will explore a wide variety of migrants, including where they live and where they go. We’ll even become field scientists as we spend a day participating in ongoing projects at Norrie Point Environmental Center on the Hudson River.

LEI participants will bring home an understanding of the marvels of migration. Participants will gain valuable ideas, standards-based curriculum and activities, and connect with a network of peers. We’ll do this with the guidance of experts like nationally recognized Chris Bowser, recipient of US EPA’s Environmental Quality Award for his creation of the American Eel Project, as they share expert techniques for engaging students across disciplines and grade levels.

In his 2018 State of the State, Governor Cuomo directed New York’s environmental, energy, and transportation agencies to advance a cleaner, safer, and more reliable low-carbon transportation future. In response, these agencies (NYSDEC, NYSERDA, and NYSDOT) are hosting regional stakeholder discussions to encourage conversations around clean transportation. As your organization, community, or industry sector has considerable interest in transportation, energy and environmental strategies, we are seeking your input.

We invite you to engage in discussion on:

  • the economic and social considerations for deploying clean transportation strategies;
  • how you or your organization could support and benefit from opportunities to enhance environmental and public health benefits through a modernized transportation system;
  • how innovative, low-carbon transportation may enhance your quality of life or otherwise affect the competitiveness of your sector, business or community; and

* 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.

We would appreciate receiving feedback from our users. Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties viewing or using this calendar by sending an email to the DEC webmaster.
