- Top picks for fall hikes
Visit the Great Autumn Hikes page for the best places across the state to take in the foliage, watch migrating birds and enjoy fall’s cool crisp (bug-free!) air.
- Batten down the hatches against rodents, squirrels and bats
Seal all holes and openings that are more than ¼-inch wide with cement, caulk or stainless steel scouring pads. Check floor drains, around pipes, wiring and foundations. Bats can enter through 1cm-wide cracks in rotted eaves, where the chimney meets the house and through ventilation slats.
- Big cash incentives for photovoltaics
Thinking about installing solar panels? NYSERDA is accepting applications for its Solar PV Program that will cover up to 40% of the cost of residential and commercial systems. The system must be put in by an eligible installer. Get program details on the NYSERDA website.
