For more than 15 years, data collected at Five Rivers has been contributed to this continent-wide citizen science project conducted through the University of Minnesota. Join volunteers in the United States, Canada, and Mexico in conserving monarchs and advancing the understanding of butterfly ecology and migration in general. Wear long pants and bring a sun hat and water. We will meet at the visitor center.

DEC filed an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rule Making (ANPRM) with the New York State Department of State on July 27, 2022. The ANPRM is a data gathering and public outreach exercise intended to inform future reclassification and water quality standard rule makings applicable to saline waters of the State. The ANPRM is not a regulatory action, but an opportunity to gather stakeholder data to inform future regulatory changes, if appropriate.

The public notice of the ANPRM starts a 90-day data solicitation period where stakeholders may submit data to DEC in response to the ANPRM and the questions posed within it. The data solicitation period will close at midnight on October 25, 2022.

DEC plans to hold two public information meetings in support of the ANPRM. These are not hearings, but opportunities for stakeholders to learn about the ANPRM process and ask questions about the data DEC seeks in response to the ANPRM.

Public Information Meeting #2 will be held in-person on September 29, 2022, at 2 p.m. at the DEC Region 2 office.

Date: September 29, 2022
Time: 2:00 PM
Address: NYSDEC Region 2 office, 8th Floor, Conference Room 834
47-40 21st Street, Long Island City, NY 11101

No pre-registration is required for the in-person meeting. The opportunity to ask questions of DEC regarding the ANPRM will be afforded at the in-person meeting.

Join us after school to get some fresh air, stretch your legs, and have fun outdoors. We’ll meet in front of the visitor center to head out on an adventure. Each week will have a different theme and will include time to explore. Come for as many sessions as you’d like, and dress for outdoor activity. For children in grades K–5 and their caregivers.

Space is limited. Call 518-475-0291 by the Monday prior 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.
