Fragility Above the Treeline
The Adirondack Park's Mount Marcy contains examples of nearly all of New York State’s protected alpine species. With steadily rising numbers of visitors, it’s important that we all understand just how fragile these plants are and what we can do to help protect them.

Tips for Seeing Fall Foliage in the Adirondacks
Fall is one of the most bewildering times to enjoy the Adirondacks. The weather is mild, the bugs have retreated, and the leaves put on the most glorious color display as they change from green to yellow, orange, red, burgundy, or brown. But as it is one of the most popular times to get out and enjoy the Park, it’s important to think about how you can minimize the footprint of your experience and maximize your fun before you hit the road.

Some hikers may pride themselves in “bagging” a certain number of peaks in a weekend. But it's good to slow down and take a little extra time to foster a deeper connection to and appreciation for the environment where you are hiking.

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.
