ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has postponed the upcoming “Becoming an Outdoors-Woman” activities.

- Hiking on public land or state parks
- Deer antler shed hunting
- Scouting for turkey or deer season
- Small game hunting
- Taking the kids on a nature scavenger hunt
