In celebration of Mothers’ Day, join us as we read the classic children’s picture book, Are You My Mother?, by P.D. Eastman. After our story, we’ll take a walk to look for signs of baby animals at Five Rivers. Appropriate for children ages 3–7. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Space is limited and registration is required. Call 518-475-0291 by Wednesday, May 5, to register.

In the event of severe weather, the walk may be canceled, but we’ll still meet to share the book.

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.
