New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has announced that the agency’s outdoor magazine The Conservationist, published since 1946, will now be available in both print and digital editions.
The digital edition will offer subscribers additional content, including video and audio files and more pictures.
For a limited time, the digital version of the August 2016 issue is being made available free of charge for all to see here. Current subscribers to the print edition who have provided an e-mail address will be notified when new digital issues become available.
The August edition includes articles on clamming, incredible pictures of dragonflies, and a thrilling piece on how Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger made a successful emergency landing of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River after both of the plane’s engines were disabled by hitting Canada geese in flight.
A subscription to The Conservationist costs $12 for one year, or $21 for two years. Subscribers will receive both the print edition and access to the digital format. Subscribers also receive complementary issues of Conservationist for Kids three times a year, specially designed for children at the fourth-grade level.
