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. Wear long pants and bring a sun hat and water. We will meet at the visitor center. Go to www.mlmp.org to learn about the project.

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

  • Become an ambassador to the sport; take a friend fishing for the first time.
  • Invite a friend to New York to fish.
  • Take a spouse or significant other fishing.
  • Take the family fishing...and don't forget the grandparents!

This two-mile walk on Wild Turkey Trail features some of the best grassland habitat Five Rivers has. We will walk along Five Rivers’ WHIP (wildlife habitat improvement program) parcel and discuss the management of this grassland. We will observe the species that benefit from all the hard work our staff and volunteers put into maintaining the meadow. This walk then circles through a beautiful hemlock forest before bringing you back to the meadow. If you have them, bring binoculars to observe our grassland species.
