Two State Legislative Priorities for the Adirondacks | APA and ATV Reform
Spring is here, and many are pulling their hiking gear out of their closets and putting their winter coats away. Spring is a time of hope and opportunity, and there is great potential as the state Legislature resumes its session after completing the budget process and taking a brief hiatus. The Adirondack Council is hopeful that our representatives will use this opportunity to pass legislation to reform to the Adirondack Park Agency Act and all-terrain vehicle use.

The 5th Season | Spring in the Adirondacks?
April is the time of year when residents of the Adirondacks are tested. During “mud-season,” it’s easy to be an impatient outdoor recreation enthusiast. When the occasional sunny day occurs, it’s tempting to leap ahead to warm weather activities like hiking and mountain biking. But for the sustainability of the trails, it’s essential to show restraint, and allow the trails to dry out – completely – before subjecting them to the onslaught of use that is now the Adirondack norm in the summer and fall seasons.

Conservation Considered in Largest Army Training Exercise in Adirondack Park
From April 10 through 18, Adirondack Park visitors and residents are likely to notice military training exercises happening around them. The exercises involve several types of military aircraft and hundreds of soldiers on the ground. Army officials said it is the largest such training exercise it has ever conducted in the Adirondack Park. After heeding the advice of the Adirondack Council, the Army will avoid sensitive environmental locations, including known wildlife areas and – to the extent possible - designated Wilderness Areas in its training missions.

The Adirondacks Rock! Part 1: The Beginning
Being raised along the shores of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack coast, I spent many summer days at the beach. Some of my favorite activities involved rocks, more specifically skipping stones (the flatter the better!) and collecting unique rocks and feebly attempting to crack them apart in hopes of unearthing fossils. Examining these rocks would inevitably lead to puzzlement and many questions. In order to answer these questions, we must look back in time.
