This includes walk-in sites, and walk-in sites with a single-lane parking area. These BMPs also address large groups, camping permits, size limits, improvements, and regulation changes for primitive tent sites.

How to Do It: WINTER TREE IDENTIFICATION

To identify a tree, we often look to their leaves for clues to their identification. But what about when there are no leaves? If you look closely, you can find all the information you need to confidently name the tree. We will use the Winter Tree Finder as our guide. Bring one, borrow one, or buy one at the Visitor Center.

* 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.
