DEC to Host Environmental Field Day at Hale Creek Field Station

WHAT: The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will host nearly 120 seventh grade students from the Fonda-Fultonville Middle School and the Wheelerville School for Hale Creek Field Day on June 20. Hale Creek Field Day has been held annually since 1990, and provides hands-on experiences for students to learn about environmental science, natural history, and what it means to live "green." Participating students will get their hands and feet wet and muddy as they sample streams, identify fish and invertebrates, explore the local forest habitats, and enjoy a day outdoors. The day's events include hands-on experiences in stream ecology, fish identification, pollutants in fish and wildlife, fish processing for pollutant analysis, amphibian identification and ecology, and forest ecology.

WHEN: Thursday, June 20, at 10 a.m.

WHERE: DEC's Hale Creek Field Station - 182 Steele Avenue Extension, Gloversville, NY 12078
