A Message from NYS DEC

In response to the public health emergency for the Covid-19 virus, State employees have been directed to work predominately from home. This includes staff at Five Rivers Environmental Education Center. As a result,

  • The visitor center is currently closed.
  • The trails are open from sunrise to sunset.
  • Restrooms are available 8AM-8PM at the Guided School Program building.

Reminder: No pets allowed on property or trails, except trained service dogs and miniature horses helping their companion.

Please be advised....

Friends followed health and safety measures to allow for the running of Summer Family Fun and Honey Bee programming. With the successful conclusion of these programs, Friends is happy to announce limited Fall Programming. Friends will continue to monitor updates and guidance from local, state and federal authorities to maintain the wellbeing of our patrons. Should you have any questions or concerns, contact Nancy by email at
