Public meetings over the classification of the New York State-owned Boreas Ponds Tract have taken place since early November, and everyone - from local snowmobile clubs to environmental advocacy groups - has voiced their opinion on the issue. As these meetings wind down, the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) will have to weigh the pros and cons of each land classification proposal.

There's a lot to think about during the holiday season: making plans with the family, picking out holiday gifts, and finding time to have fun. Take some time to relax this weekend and plan on attending one of these fantastic holiday and seasonal events going on in the Adirondacks!
