‘Adirondack Explorer’ Has Finch, Pruyn Deal Covered


Those of you who read Adirondack Almanack regularly know we’ve attempted to keep you informed about the controversy over how to classify the former Finch, Pruyn lands recently acquired by the state from the Nature Conservancy.

The photo on the cover, taken by Nancie Battaglia, shows two canoeists running a rapid on >>More

Chris Morris On Amazing Adirondack Stories


Amazing things happen in the Adirondacks every day. I want to share those stories with you.

I’ll also highlight opportunities for you to get involved and give back. The purpose of this feature is two-fold. For one, I hope these stories will inspire others to act. That could mean volunteering at a local animal shelter, signing up to coach youth athletics or donating money to a meaningful cause. If I fail to inspire you, that’s OK: my other goal >>More

Cabin Life: Preparing to Raise Chickens


Well, there’s finally been a bit of a break in the rain, and even though the bugs are bad and the hammock is soaked, I’m really enjoying sitting outside in the sun.  After spending the last couple of weeks cleaning up the yard, I’m about ready to move on to another project. Fortunately and unfortunately, my next project has a deadline of two weeks.  That’s when I will be getting chickens, and I’ve got a lot to do before they get here. During my yard cleanup, I actually dragged something additional into the yard.  Back behind the woodshed in the >>More
