What's New In the Adirondacks

September 2011 Archives

On Saturday, September 24, the Adirondack Museum will participate in in the seventh annual Smithsonian Magazine Museum Day. Museum Day is a celebration of the dissemination of knowledge to anyone and everyone interested, free of charge -- emulating the free admission policy of the Smithsonian Institution. 

It looks like Museum Day 2011 will be the largest to date, outdoing last years record-breaking event. Last year, 227,747 tickets were downloaded resulting in more than 500,000 museum goers to visit over 1,300 venues in all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico.
As part of the day of remembrance for the victims of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, the Adirondack Museum is inviting everyone who wears red, white and blue to receive $2 off adult admission.

The Adirondack Museum will host the 24th Annual Rustic Furniture Fair on September 10 and 11. The fair is a festival of rustic arts including handcrafted furniture, furnishings and original Adirondack paintings.
trail_closed_sign.jpgJust got an update on the conditions in the Eastern Adirondacks, and it's not good. As you know, the eastern High Peaks Wilderness, Giant Mountain Wilderness, and Dix Mountain Wilderness areas are all closed indefinitely. There will be DEC Forest Rangers positioned at trailheads in these wilderness areas, offering safe options in the nearby Forest Preserve for hikers and backpackers.
