Five Rivers Environmental Education Center

 

Five Rivers Environmental Education Center is a living museum comprising over 450 acres of fields, forests, and wetlands. Five Rivers offers people of all ages a rich variety of guided and self-guided tours. The interpretive programs and guided school lessons promote awareness, knowledge and appreciation of New York State’s environment year ’round. With over 10 miles of trails for exploration, Five Rivers fosters discovery, spiritual refreshment and physical fitness through wholesome outdoor recreation.

Before you head out on the trails, stop in our new visitor center to learn about the habitats and wildlife of Five Rivers, our history, and the green features of the new building.

The visitor center is open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM (closed Sundays and state holidays). The grounds and trails are open every day, year-round, from sunrise to sunset. You can walk (snowshoe) the trails, observe wildlife, and picnic. Dogs and other pets are not permitted.

Wildlife to Watch for:

  • Great place for birdwatching: 225 species, no waiting!
  • Excellent chance for watching deer and squirrels, even in winter!
  • Spring and fall migrations are definitely worth a gander!
  • In summer, expect to encounter turtles, geese, frogs and grassland bird species
