This month we welcome a super full moon—super bright, and super big in the sky. We’ll walk out the Wild Turkey Trail for a great view of this once-in-a-while occurrence.

Space is limited and registration is required. Call 518-475-0291 by Friday, April 23, to register.

In the event of severe weather or heavy cloud cover, this program will be canceled.

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.

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.
