Purchase a $50 New York state camping gift card and get a bonus $25 camping gift card, wildlife viewing guide and Conservationist magazine subscription

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is offering a two-day "Wilderness Bundle" outdoor gift package, DEC Commissioner Joe Martens announced. On both "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday," anyone who purchases a $50 DEC camping gift card will receive a bonus $25 camping gift card, a one-year subscription to the New York state Conservationist magazine, and a copy of the "New York Wildlife Viewing Guide."

"The DEC 'Wilderness Bundle' is a great gift for friends and family who love the outdoors, and will be available at a special savings on just these two popular shopping days," Martens said. "Our DEC campgrounds are an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors or just to get away from it all to relax and recharge. A DEC gift card is also great holiday gift option, because there's no guessing about what equipment or size clothing to buy. The free $25 bonus card included in the bundle makes it even better."

Special pricing on the "Wilderness Bundle" will only be available by calling 518-457-2500 Nov. 28 and Dec. 1.

DEC's flagship publication, Conservationist, informs and entertains readers about the Empire State's fish, wildlife and outdoor recreation opportunities.

"For close to 70 years, Conservationist magazine has highlighted all that makes New York's outdoors great," Martens said. "Our diverse ecosystem, incredible natural resources and world-class outdoor destinations give millions of residents and tourists a unique opportunity to experience the great outdoors at its best."

The "New York State Wildlife Viewing Guide" is 248 pages of color photos and tips on viewing and wildlife photography. More than 100 viewing sites are featured in the book.
