Here’s a look at news from around the Adirondacks this week:
We’re living in a time when you think a little longer about every dollar you spend—cutting out some of the extras in order to fill the gas tank. We hope you still see value in the work we’re doing with the Adirondack Explorer and our community forum on the Adirondack Almanack, to bring you news you need about the Adirondack Park.
Our dedicated journalists work hard to bring you comprehensive coverage of the Adirondack Park, from stories about its spectacular natural beauty and inspiring outdoor adventures, to information about the threats and opportunities facing its wildlife, fresh water, and rural communities. Tracking and reporting on policy decisions that impact all of these irreplaceable assets is central to our mission—and it costs money to produce.
This summer, we want to hear from you. What Adirondack issues are important to you? Is there more you'd like to see us report? What's happening in your community that we need to know about?
We are launching an "Adirondack Listening Tour" beginning June 22 and we hope you'll join us.
Editor’s note: Adirondack Explorer board member Charlotte Hall wrote this poem about Tree 103. Believed to be one of the tallest trees in the state, Tree 103 toppled in December 2021 after spending its life as part of a group of giant white pines known as “Elder’s Grove,” near Paul Smith’s College’s Visitor Information Center (VIC).
St. Lawrence County– Volunteers are needed to assist a removal effort of water chestnut on the Oswegatchie River near the dam, in the Village of Heuvelton.
The removal effort is scheduled for Saturday, June 25th, 2022. Food will be provided by the Village of Heuvelton Fire Department to those who assist the effort. This is a great opportunity for community members to spend some time on the water, and help protect the Oswegatchie River.
