Group to talk future of the Schroon/Paradox Watershed

SCHROON — Things are looking better in the battle against invasive plants and animals and pollution, but will that trend last? Threats from Lake George, Lake Champlain and road and stream runoff are on their border. The next five years will make a huge difference in whether Schroon and Paradox will remain relatively trouble free or succumb to the massive threats facing Lake George and Lake Champlain. In addition what will that fight take in money, taxes, community resources, municipal and county strength and community spirit? How much are our environmental issues wound up with the clear economic woes inside the Blue Line. Who will we end up saving the lakes for as their population greys?

Yet despite these difficulties there are people working hard whose efforts continue despite those challenges. We have assembled a wonderful panel of experienced “realistic optimists.” All have battle scars and much less naiveté than they had at the start. They have been there and are still fighting the fight- they have a lot to teach us.

Friday July 8, at the Schroon Lake Central School Auditorium, at 7:30 p.m. enter by south entrance of building. There will be ample parking.

Panelists include Daniel Stec the State Assemblyman, Fred Monroe the long term Executive of the Adirondack Local Government Review Board, Willie Janeway the Executive director of the Adirondack Council, David Wick the Executive Director of the Lake George Commission and Brandon Quirion the Coordinator of the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program.

The Panelists will each speak about ten minutes and then engage in discussion between them. There will be opportunity for questions and discussion with the audience. All are welcome. Admission is free.
