Take part in ongoing research on monarch butterflies. For more than 15 years, we have collected data at Five Rivers and contributed to the University of Minnesota’s continent-wide citizen science project. The goal of the MLMP is to better understand how and why monarch populations vary, with a focus on their distribution and abundance during the breeding season in North America (Canada, Mexico, and United States). Go to monarchjointventure.org/mlmp to learn more about the project.

For this program, meet at the pavilion near the main parking lot.

Please call 518-475-0291 by the Monday  before the program to register

About the Bay Park Conveyance Project


The Bay Park Conveyance Project is a partnership between NYSDEC and NCDPW. Together NYSDEC and NCDPW are improving water quality and storm resiliency in Long Island’s Western Bays by upgrading its existing wastewater management infrastructure. This innovative Project will convey treated water from the South Shore Water Reclamation Facility (previously known as the Bay Park Sewage Treatment Plant) located in Nassau County, New York, to the Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant's ocean outfall pipe.

* 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.
