Five Rivers BioBlitz, June 3-10

Help us celebrate Five Rivers’ biodiversity by taking part in a BioBlitz. Our goal is to take inventory of the species of plants, animals, and insects that live at Five Rivers. From June 3-10 you can participate by submitting your observations online via iNaturalist or by joining an organized BioBlitz event. Five Rivers will be hosting themed activities for all ages to enjoy throughout the week so the whole family can get involved.

Saturday, June 10, 8:00 a.m. - Morning Bird Walk – Join us for an early morning walk to see and hear what birds we have at Five Rivers, with the help of expert birders. Meet outside the Visitor Center at 8:00 a.m. There will be a brief introduction, and then we will hit the trails. Bring binoculars if you have them. We will also have binoculars available to borrow. The walk will last roughly two hours, but feel free to turn back at any time. 

Please call 518-475-0291 to register. Everyone is welcome, regardless of knowledge or experience. You will be contacted in the event of a weather-related cancellation.

Due to the ongoing poor air quality, this event has been postponed. We will repost the event when a new date is selected. 

The outdoors is for everyone. Join us as we highlight ways to explore and enjoy the outdoors. Take a hike, try out bird watching, and more. We’ll have a special focus on making the outdoors accessible to all, whether with adaptive equipment or specialized facilities and programs.

* 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.
