He has written extensively for general audiences in periodicals such as National Geographic, The New York Times, and Adirondack Life. Since 1990, he has also co-hosted Natural Selections, a weekly science program on North Country Public Radio. His most recent book is Still Waters: The Secret World of Lakes. He teaches at Paul Smiths College.

Admission is a $5 donation, students free. The Grange is at 1610 NYS Route 22 in Essex, NY (corner of Whallons Bay Road). More information is available on their website, or by calling (518) 963-7777.
