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.

LIVING SIMPLY

In honor of Thoreau’s birthday, July 12, we will discuss ways of living a simpler life. With so many options, from community sharing websites to recycling your neighbors’ trash, we can all find a simpler and more sustainable way to live. Come prepared to ask questions and be engaged in the conversation. You will get a to-do list pad to take home as an example of what a little effort can do to decrease waste in landfills and simplify your life.

Family Fun: INSECTS ABOUND!

Join us for a guided walk to look for insects and their homes. Insects are essential pollinators and a primary food source for many animals here at Five Rivers. Bring your explorer tools if you have them. You never know what we might find.

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

* 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.
