It’s time again for our annual celebration of all creatures strange and silly! Join us as we mark Read Across America Day with selections from favorite books by Dr. Seuss. Follow along as we read about Yertle the Turtle, The Lorax, Sneeches and more. Be inspired to draw your own animal in the style of Dr. Seuss, and watch for an appearance by The Cat in the Hat himself.

NOTE: We are unable to accommodate organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) at our public programs. Please call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to schedule a separate program for your group.

* 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.
