Potential Changes for New York State Trout Stream Management
For over 30 years, the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has used the Catch Rate Oriented Trout Stocking program to manage trout streams across the state. This uses the assumption that anglers prefer to catch-and-keep as many fish as possible. But through the decades, angler perspectives have shifted to more catch-and-release ideals and a willingness to catch fewer, larger and wilder fish than the generic eight-inch hatchery fish used in the DEC’s stocking program.

Get Out and Play! The Benefits of Kids and the Outdoors in the Adirondack Park
North Country School’s designated “out-time” gives students a unique opportunity to grow as individuals and thinkers. For an hour and a half, Monday through Friday, they learn from the land, each other and their community in a natural environment. Additionally, the school leads outdoor trips every Saturday. By hiking, rock climbing, and mountain biking, North Country School is encouraging their students to be comfortable in and maintain a respect for the outdoors.

Coniferous Foliage in the Adirondacks
It takes just one quick look out your window to enjoy the beautiful array of reds, oranges and yellows produced by Adirondack foliage this time of year. However, hardwoods are not the only trees producing autumn color. Our own Diane Fish ventured out to Boreas Pond a few weeks ago and found a variety of coniferous trees displaying autumn colors.

Foliage Report Sept 29| Fall Foliage in the Adirondacks
It says it is September on the calendar, but the weather is telling us that it is summer this week. Today, the temps are back down to fall temps. In the Champlain region, we've noticed that the foliage seems to have "paused" with the warm weather. However, our friends in the Saranac Lake and Old Forge areas have seen a lot of color. Perhaps this warmer weather will extend the fall colors? Time will tell.
