The rule would establish a minimum size limit of five and one-half inches shell length or three inches shell width, require the use of bait bags, establish gear marking, buoy line, pot size and daytime hauling requirements and restrict the placement of whelk pots near navigation channels. In addition, the proposed rule clarifies that marine and coastal district food fish and crustacea dealers and shippers license holders must report purchases of marine food fish, crustacea, horseshoe crabs and whelks from harvesters consistent with requirements currently in place in 6 NYCRR Parts 40 and 44. 

For complete text of the rule, visit DEC's Marine Resources Regulation Revisions webpage. 

Comment period is open through June 21, 2021.

What should you do if you find a five-leaf clover? When is it dangerous to dream of daisies? Does any culture value dandelions? Does heal-all heal all? The valued cultivated plants our ancestors brought to the Americas are now a familiar part of our wild landscape. On this exploratory stroll, we will search out some of these flora pioneers and, hopefully, find answers to our questions.

Space is limited and registration is required. Call 518-475-0291 by Friday, June 18, to register

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.
