What’s the connection between Capital Region birds and the coffee in your cup? Explore this question with Brew the Roost, a series of interactive quilts that highlight the seasonal migration of birds and the importance of shade-grown coffee in maintaining biodiversity in coffee-growing regions. Quilts will be updated every two weeks as the fall migration progresses. 

This family-friendly art exhibit, created by local artist Katherine Lynn Bierman, will be on view in the visitor center through Thanksgiving.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and partners of New York's Great Lakes Action Team hold four regional work group meetings twice per year and provide stakeholders with a unique opportunity to:

  • Advance priority projects under the state's Great Lakes Action Agenda.
  • Connect and collaborate with regional partners to protect water quality and ecosystems.
  • Leverage resources and expertise toward watershed management goals and challenges.

NYSDEC's Great Lakes Program invites you to attend an upcoming work group meeting to connect with local partners and learn how you and/or your organization can join us in protecting and restoring our Great Lakes lands and waters. 

The Southwest Lake Ontario meeting will be held at:

Tinker Nature Park
1525 Calkins Road
Pittsford, NY 14513

The other meetings are scheduled:

  • Northeast Lake Ontario: Tuesday, November 12th - West Carthage
  • Southeast Lake Ontario: Wednesday, November 13th - Newark
  • Lake Erie: Friday, November 15th - Depew

The four regional work group areas are pictured in the map below, with partner priority sub-watersheds highlighted in green.

* 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.
