Poetry: Remote Viewing the Five Ponds Wilderness


Remote Viewing the Five Ponds Wilderness Just like smelling pheromones in the armpits, there has always been evidence, the human system knowing the future. A series of arbitrary numbers. Walking out into the unknown depths, we can’t think of these things as being separate. Like Thoreau said, “the old upon the walls…” There are no bodies without energy, and there is no energy without consciousness. Awareness enhanced, activated senses, the other things appearing even we are not supposed to. Heralded by the rain. Clutching a clump of fur in our talons. Just insect-eaters feeding in fissures and furrows on the >>More

Featured Trail: Village Trail, Boquet River Nature Preserve


The Adirondack Chapter of The Nature Conservancy has opened a half-mile trail connecting Willsboro’s Main Street with the Boquet River Nature Preserve’s existing trail network. The trail provides convenient access to the Conservancy’s 120-acre preserve, and gives a further boost to the village’s ongoing downtown revitalization. The natural dirt and stone trail, which features 60 stone steps, is the latest improvement the Conservancy’s Adirondack Chapter has made to the preserve. In 2017, the Conservancy opened Tim’s Trail, a mile-long, wheelchair-accessible loop that is the second-longest such trail in the Adirondacks. A year before, crews upgraded the River Trail » Continue >>More

How Gore Mountain Got The Name On It’s New Logo


When the earliest Adirondack maps were drawn, Gore Mountain’s true summit could not be clearly identified. As colonial surveyor Verplanck Colvin put it “the highest point always seemed to disappear in the intricate group of peaks of which the mountain was composed.” As the area around the mountain was increasingly surveyed, a “gore” developed between two large tracts of land, Hyde’s Patent, and the southeast line of  the Totten & Crossfield Purchase.  It was in or near this gore –  a surveyor’s term indicating an unmapped triangular » Continue Reading.

Study Tracks Massive Loss of Birdlife Since 1970


A study published in the journal Science reveals that since 1970, bird populations in the United States and Canada have declined by 29 percent, or almost 3 billion birds, signaling what has been considered a widespread ecological crisis. The results show tremendous losses across diverse groups of birds and habitats — from iconic songbirds such as meadowlarks to long-distance migrants such as swallows, and backyard birds such as sparrows. More research is needed to pinpoint primary causes for declines in individual species. “Multiple, independent lines of evidence show a massive reduction in the abundance of birds,” said Ken Rosenberg, the >>More
