4:00 PMFive Rivers - Golden Hour
http://www.dec.ny.gov/education/1835.html
Contact  Five Rivers Environmental Education Center
518-475-0291 or 5Rivers@dec.ny.gov
Location  Five Rivers Environmental Education Center, 56 Game Farm Road Delmar, NY 12054 - Map

Golden hour starts about an hour before sunset every day. The setting sun casts magnificent shadows and bathes the landscape in a bright golden hue. Clouds are set ablaze with reds, oranges, purples and pinks as the sun goes down. Every other week a naturalist will be stationed at a different location on the property that provides a great view as the sun sets. Bring cameras, sketch pads or any other art supplies you would want to capture this experience. While artistic expression is encouraged, it is not necessary. All are welcome to come and enjoy the scenery.

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.
