Winter Preparation: Methods employed by insects, mammals, birds, and reptiles 

Dwindling daylight and cooling temperatures trigger humans to dig out hats, gloves, and heavy coats. Other animals, including insects, mammals, birds, and reptiles, take these environmental cues and prepare in remarkable ways to survive winter. Join an inquisitive group of adults as we wander Five Rivers and wonder about its inhabitants’ preparations. Photographs, guidebooks, skulls, pelts, and other materials will help enlighten us as we discuss the focused, quiet activity all around us. Who knows? It might just trigger us to be more proactive in our own preparations for winter! 

Space is limited; registration required.

Dates: Thursdays, November 3, 10, and 17 (rain date: December 1); Time: 10:00–11:30 AM

Fee: $20 for members; $25 for non-members

Registration: online at www.FriendsofFiveRivers.org, under the “Education Programs” tab

Registration Deadline: Thursday, October 27

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.

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.
