Explore Nature at Five Rivers

If you love exploring and learning about nature, listen up! Hear about the Five Rivers Environmental Education Center in Delmar, NY, just a few miles southwest of Albany. Paulette Doudoukjian, director of Friends of Five Rivers (FFR), describes how the 450-acre center offers feasts for the senses. She also overviews some of the many nature education programs for kids, teens, and adults offered through her “membership-driven” organization. FFR welcomes volunteers to help with everything from leading outdoor programs to monitoring bluebirds and more. FFR’s recent award from Parks and Trails of New York will help the group expand their outreach and programs. For details about offerings & volunteer opportunities, visit friendsoffiverivers.org. For a trail map and other info from the NY Department of Environmental Conservation, which owns and operates the facility, see dec.ny.gov/places/five-rivers-center.
