Watchable Wildlife: WELCOMING BACK THE EARLY SPRING MIGRANTS

Get outdoors at the place to be in spring! We will watch for birds that are returning to breed at Five Rivers (e.g., wood duck, killdeer, American kestrel, and tree swallow). We may also see birds who are passing through because they still have miles to go before they reach their northern nesting grounds. Bring binoculars if you have them. A limited supply will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Space is limited. 

Space is limited. Call 518-475-0291 by Wednesday, April 13 to register.

* 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.
