The Five Rivers Environmental Education Center in Delmar is a 446-acre environmental preserve that features 12 miles of trail, 16 different ponds and wetlands, and an expansive forested area. The center's mission is to "develop public awareness and appreciation of natural resources and instill in people a conservation ethic through repeated visits."
According to Thompson, "The goal is to make people aware of what's out there and what's natural. Then people begin to appreciate the necessity of conservation and changing lifestyles. All events are open to the public and admission is free of charge. For more details, contact the Five Rivers Environmental Education Center at 475-0291.""
