Drone At The Flume

In May, I met up with Dave LaMountain at the Flume on the West Branch of the Ausable River in Wilmington. LaMountain demonstrated how he uses drones to showcase the beauty of the Adirondack Park. He is a believer that drones can co-exist with the Adirondack Park if their usage is limited to noisy frontcountry areas near roads. He doesn’t believe they should be used in Wilderness areas away from roads. Because drones are now becoming more popular, the state Department of Environmental Conservation is currently working on new regulations for drone usage in the Forest Preserve. To find out more about this topic read the July issue of the Explorer.
