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.

Citizen Science: BAT COUNT TRAINING

Bats in New York State are suffering from White-nose Syndrome, which has caused the decline of many different species of bats. This area of the state was where this syndrome was discovered. Now the disease is in over half of US states and is still spreading. Five Rivers’ Jones barn is home to a colony of one of the bat species that was hardest hit by the syndrome. Join us for this indoor training and the first bat count of the season. Please call ahead to pre-register for this event at 518-475-0291 . This event will be postponed in the event of weather that does not meet the survey protocol.

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

OUTDOOR DAY 

Five Rivers will host DEC's second annual Outdoor Day with a celebration of family-friendly activities and presentations. The 445-acre site has long been a destination for area families who enjoy exploring the 10 miles of walking trails through forests, meadows, and wetlands. Five Rivers staff and volunteers have planned outdoor activities for visitors to try first-hand, such as hiking, bird watching, fishing, and pitching a tent. Five Rivers' Outdoor Day will emphasize connecting to nature through hands-on experiences. We encourage anyone interested to spend the day enjoying the outdoors and trying a new skill

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