On August 15, 1998, over 300 people in over 200 canoes, kayaks, guide-boats, rowboats, and one small sailboat, rallied on the sloping lawns of the Whitney Headquarters on the shore of Little Tupper Lake and then paddled out onto the lake in a massive flotilla in the Canoe-In for Wilderness at Little Tupper Lake. This event was the biggest environmental rally in a very challenging and divisive time in Adirondack Park history. Those who gathered that day were unabashed in their support for a Wilderness classification >>More

Poetry: Moose River Road

Moose River Road Strange how alone and ignored they are. Like mildewed beams in a scrapyard, somewhere along the Moose River Road, the doe’s loins lay untaken and twisted. Washed in burgundy, soaked on the crimson gravel, her belly still gasping as we smash into the electrical softness of distant headlights. Photo of Moose River Road. View original post.

A Partnership For Wilderness, 1946-2018

In July 1946, Howard and Alice Zahniser drove with their children to the Adirondacks for the first time.

But some chose to place themselves near the front lines, and with no weapons to defend themselves. Their only protection came from nebulous agreements by both sides not to bomb hospitals and care centers. >>More
