Programs for Sportsmen Focus on Game Animals

ESF’s Adirondack Interpretive Center offers sessions on September Sundays

The Adirondack Interpretive Center (AIC) in Newcomb, N.Y., will sponsor a series of presentations this fall to help sporting enthusiasts learn from wildlife managers and researchers.

The experts will share their knowledge of the biology, habitat and behavior of game animals so the sportsmen and women can add to their knowledge about what happens in the field and forest.

The schedule is as follows:

Sept. 4: Black bears with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Wildlife Technician Ben Tabor. The session begins at 10 a.m.

Sept. 11: Coyotes with SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) master's student Scott Warsen. The session begins at 11 a.m.

Sept. 18: Game birds with a speaker as yet to be determined. The session begins at 11 a.m.

Sept. 25: White-tailed deer with DEC Wildlife Biologist Ed Reed. The session begins at 11 a.m.

Each session will last about an hour. The series will continue in October with additional presentations about game and sporting, including trapping.

Registration is not required. Anyone wishing further information can call the AIC at 518-582-2000.

The AIC is the central point for public programs, events, courses and other activities offered through ESF's Northern Forest Institute. The center is located on State Route 28N in Newcomb.
