Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council to offer free Stewards of the Water program on Sept. 10

The Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council (LARAC) has announced a special event featuring Stewards of the Water, a book composed and published by the Assembly Point Water Quality Coalition. The event will take place on Saturday, September 10 from noon to 2 p.m. at LARAC, located at 7 Lapham Place in Glens Falls. The LARAC is also currently highlighting an extensive art exhibit by water colorist, Tom Ryan, who illustrated Stewards of the Water. Several authors of the book will discuss the various impacts of 170 years of environmental activism on Lake George.

Without the dedicated efforts of past stewards, there would be none of the following:

  • “Forever Wild” clause in the NYS constitution
  • The Dome Island preserve
  • The Narrows, as we know it today
  • More than 180 islands of unparalleled beauty
  • Lake George within the Adirondack Park.

The event is open to the public and free of charge. Wine and cheese will be served.

All programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of the Governor’s Office and the New York State Legislature.
