Saranac Lake, NY – The Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation is thrilled to welcome a new mascot at the Adirondack Loon Center at 75 Main Street in Saranac Lake. A very unique sculpture of a loon turning its eggs was created for the Loon Center by North Country School students and their art teacher, Larry Robjent of Robjent Sculptures. This spectacular bird is made of 100-percent recycled metal (with red golf ball eyes), including scrap construction materials and retired maple sap can lids. Before the students painted her, she was powder-coated by Saranac Lake’s own Matt Woodruff.
Saranac Lake, NY – Poetry is alive and well in the Adirondack region, inspiring folks to embrace their creative sides while visiting various locations in the Adirondacks. Two such examples of artistic outlets include a recently released Poetry Machine created by those at the Adirondack Center for Writing (ACW) based in Saranac Lake. Another is ACW’s upcoming Poem Village 2023, a program in which submitted poems will be published and hung in storefront windows in Saranac Lake in mid-April, remaining up until mid-May. Poetry submissions are due by April 1.
