What's New In the Adirondacks

In April, we wrote about "The 46ers," a documentary by local filmmaker Blake Cortright that focuses on the people who have summited all 46 of the Adirondacks' High Peaks. The wait is over, and you can finally go see the film in theaters!

The Ring of Fire on Great Sacandaga Lake is an end-of-summer tradition! Before you start any fires this weekend, though, be sure to brush up on some safety tips to prevent unintended blazes.

Attention, anglers! The DEC recently announced that it will host a free fishing event this weekend as part of Governor Cuomo's New York Open for Fishing and Hunting Initiative and the DEC's I FISH NY program.

Have a great Labor Day Weekend with these five events happening throughout the Adirondacks!

The NYS DEC recently made a few changes to whitetail deer hunting regulations in the state to better manage deer populations. Some areas have more than enough deer, while other areas are struggling to support the herd.

The initial release of information was somewhat difficult to understand, so let me break down the new rules for you, based on Wildlife Management Unit (WMU):

Earlier this month, a North Country Public Radio listener asked what the Adirondacks would've looked like prior to the last Ice Age. The question sparked an intriguing discussion between Martha Foley and Dr. Curt Stager that's worth sharing!

This week, the Department of Environmental Conservation announced that it will accept public comments on a revised Draft Recreation Management Plan (RMP) as it moves forward with expanding opportunities on the Kushaqua Tract Conservation Easement Lands.

There's nothing more beautiful than the Adirondacks when the foliage is at its peak. While the leaves are brilliant to behold from ground-level and from mountaintops, you've probably never gotten to see them from tree-level. This fall, though, The Wild Center will give visitors the opportunity to experience the colors of autumn like never before!

Earlier this month, the Department of Environmental Conservation announced that its Community Connector Trail Plan has been finalized, and that construction would begin on the 40-mile multiple-use trail system immediately. This week, another step was taken toward connecting the towns of Newcomb, Minerva, Indian Lake, Long Lake, and North Hudson, as the DEC announced that it will develop a lodging network to further link those communities.
