DEC’s “Field Notes” Bring Fish and Wildlife News To Your Inbox


Anyone interested in wildlife viewing opportunities, recent fish stocking activities or proposed changes to trapping regulations can keep current by signing up for the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s “Field Notes” e-mail list. Subscribers can receive timely, helpful and educational updates about the state’s fish and wildlife programs directly to their e-mail accounts.

DEC’s Division of Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources will send an e-mail newsletter on a regular basis that will feature items such as fishing forecasts, tips on where and how to view peregrine falcons, updates on hunting seasons and important DEC initiatives throughout the state. Field Notes will also cover regulatory proposals posted for public comment, sporting license information, tips on preventing the spread of invasive species and upcoming public events.

“Our dedicated staff is constantly working on interesting projects and important policies that will impact the future of New York’s fish and wildlife management,” said Patricia Riexinger, DEC’s Director of Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources. “Field Notes will help subscribers keep on top of issues that matter to them. And, hopefully, it also will educate young and old alike about the diverse species and habitats that make up our great state.”

For more information about Field Notes and how to subscribe, go to http://www.dec.ny.gov/about/63801.html on the DEC website.
