The ReLeaf conference is back! Green spaces and public trees have never been more important than during the last two years, and we are looking forward to being together again. The 2022 conference theme is “Trees bring us together” and we are excited to share our speakers in the coming months.

We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker for the conference is Ian Leahy, Vice president of Urban Forestry at American Forests! Ian was the urban and community forestry program coordinator for Washington DC before joining American Forests, where he has developed the Tree Equity program since 2014.

Please plan to join us in Watertown NY, at Jefferson Community College, July 21-23, 2022.

Full agenda and registration are available on the Council's website

Summer is the ideal time to celebrate bugs, butterflies, beetles, and more with your friends at Five Rivers. There are so many to meet and greet in our gardens and fields. We’ll have a bug safari for kids, guided pollinator garden tours, a scavenger hunt, and bug crafts. Kids are encouraged to come in bug costumes if they would like—wear antennae, wings, or some extra legs… whatever feels like your inner bug. Join us to celebrate these little animals that make all life on earth possible!

 No registration required.

* 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.
