9th Annual Fire Tower Lighting event set for Sept. 3

The 9th Annual Fire Tower Lighting event is scheduled for Saturday, September 3 from 9 to 9:30 p.m. and will include several fire towers in the Adirondacks and Catskills. On the evening of the event, volunteers will light fire tower cabs with high-powered lights, and invite people to visit locations where they could look up, see the light on the horizon, and pay homage to fire observers who would stand watch in the towers, protecting the community and surrounding forest.

Established in 2014, this statewide event is the brain child of Doug Hamilton of the Red Hill Fire Tower Committee, and is meant to showcase the history of fire towers around the state.  They were erected in the early 20th century, as fires ravaged hundreds of thousands of square miles of wild forest.

Pendragon Theatre: Last chance to see The Woods, Nutcracker auditions set for Sept. 8

Pendragon Theatre will cap off its summer performance schedule this week with six final performances of The Woods by Jahna Ferron-Smith. The production, directed by Colette Robert, contains explicit content and is suitable for mature audiences only.

About The Woods:

Since its creation, the United States National Park Service has been tasked with preserving, arguably, this country’s most stunning monuments to the “American Dream” – majestic swaths of untamed land, symbolizing the unbridled American spirit that forged a world power; a birthright theoretically available to all Americans, regardless of race. However, dwindling Park attendance nationwide has sent the NPS scrambling to ensure its survival. The mission? To engage those they’ve traditionally left out of the narrative of the great outdoors — people of color.

The Woods, using comedy and acute perception, explores our learned relationships to the American landscape and the consequences those cultural narratives have on young Black Americans and asks: Going forward, might there be a way to manifest a more positive narrative surrounding the natural environment, for the sake of those next in line to inherit it?
