Get To Know Adirondack Moose in Old Forge Wednesday

View, the Center for Arts and Culture in Old Forge, is set to host Moose in the Adirondacks, the second lecture in its Summer Eco Gallery Talk series, on July 24 at 7 pm. Steven Heerkens, a Senior Wildlife Biologist with the DEC in Region 6, will lead the presentation.

Heerkens is a big game and migratory waterfowl biologist for the region and an administer of day-to-day wildlife programs for Oneida and Herkimer Counties. He has worked extensively in the Adirondacks with moose and black bears, and conducts annual migratory bird surveys in portions of the Adirondack Park and has also spent considerable time addressing nuisance bear issues in the Old Forge-Inlet corridor.

Admission is free to the public. View will hold a reception with a cash bar at 6 pm and Heerkens’ presentation will start at 7 pm.

The Eco Gallery Talks continue in August with Fishery Research in the Adirondack Mountain Region of NY State presented by Dan Josephson on August 6th, and Understanding Ticks and Their Diseases in NY State presented by Dr. Brian Leydet and Dr. Kristopher Paolino on August 12th. Both presentations are at 7 pm with cash bar receptions starting at 6 pm.

More information is available on View’s website, or by calling (315) 369-6411 ext. 210. View is located at 3273 State Route 28 in Old Forge.

    We’re glad to see View bring back talks on nature and wilderness to the Henry Kashiwa Eco-Gallery. In it’s earliest couple of years a group of us, including the late Mirnie Kashiwa, View’s founder, sponsored monthly presentations of Science on Sunday in the Eco-Gallery. This melding of art and nature is very much in keeping with Mrs. Kashiwa’s vision of what View’s Eco-Gallery should present.
