It’s time for bed. Fall is the time of year when many critters prepare for a long sleep. Some make their own homes, others take over the homes built by other animals, and some store food. Follow the Old Field Trail to meet with a Five Rivers educator and discover a home you may have never noticed before. In case of inclement weather, the naturalist will be under the awning between the visitor center and Guided School Program buildings.

To maintain social distancing, the naturalist will only be able to talk directly with one family at a time during this drop-in program.

For the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers, and in compliance with guidance from New York State, the New York State Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), social distancing practices must be followed. Masks must be worn throughout guided programs, while at a roving program, and on the trails whenever a 6-foot distance cannot be maintained between individuals or households.

* 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.
