Bald Eagles - Teaching the Past and Showing the Future
“Look, mom!” My 6-year-old son points excitedly to a large raptor about 150 feet off the bow of our canoe. “It’s got a fish!” With its huge wings, dark body, and white head and tail, there’s no mistaking this bald eagle. It’s close enough that we can see the fish in its talons as it flies towards a tall white pine.

8 Interesting Things About Fireflies
One of the things I love about sitting outside on a warm summer Adirondack night is seeing the flashes of fireflies. As I was watching these little flashy creatures perform their spectacular light displays, I realized how little I know about them. Why do they flash? What are they trying to convey? This led me to find that there’s more to fireflies than meets the eye.

Two Wins for the Adirondacks
New York State had two major clean air victories recently. One will bring much-needed clean-up of emissions from coal-fired power plants in states far away from the Adirondacks, whose emissions harm the Park nonetheless. The other will curb emissions created closer to home. Both will result in less smoke, soot, smog, and acid rain.

How to Recreate Responsibly During COVID-19
There is no doubt that being able to get outside has been a key part in moving through the COVID-19 pandemic for many. Recreating in the outdoors is beneficial for our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Like our food, housing, criminal justice, and many other systems, the COVID-19 pandemic has shown the holes in our outdoor recreation and wildlands management systems.
