Saranac Lake, NY – The Adirondack 46ers are supporting an Education-Outreach College Intern this summer for the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation. From June through August, this
intern will provide a series of educational presentations at day and sleep-away summer camps across the Adirondack Park. The intern will inspire passion for loon conservation and promote environmental stewardship amongst the participating campers. Under the guidance of the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation’s staff, the intern will conduct interactive presentations, storytelling, and art-based projects to engage campers in learning about loon ecology and conservation.
“The Adirondack 46ers is an organization focused on protection of natural resources. We foster appreciation of those resources through conservation, education, and outreach in the mountains and
the greater Adirondack community,” said Laurie Rankin, President of the 46ers. “We believe the ACLC has similar goals, albeit with loons. This opportunity to provide children with inspiration and
excitement regarding stewardship of the environment is one we fully support!”
“The Adirondack 46ers’ support will enable us to expand our outreach to a wonderful new audience and also provide a college student with an incredible learning experience,” said Dr. Nina Schoch,
Executive Director at the Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation. “We have offered the internship to Emma Borys, a sophomore at SUNY’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Emma is very excited to work with hundreds of Adirondack campers this summer, instilling a greater appreciation for wildlife and the environment.”
Nine summer camps have already booked their presentations with the ACLC’s Education & Outreach Intern this summer. To learn more, or to schedule a presentation, contact the Adirondack
