Introduction to the Adirondack Ecological Center and Huntington Forest

CLOSE VIDEO

The Adirondack Ecological Center (AEC) is the leader in ecological sciences in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York and a major contributor to the science internationally. Established in 1971 by the State University of New York College of Environmental Forestry (ESF) in Syracuse, the AEC provides the science that underpins the management of Adirondack Park as one of the world's foremost experiments in conservation and sustainability. We attract scientists from throughout the world, providing a base of operation for research that seeks to understand the natural ecosystems of the northern forest. Together with top educators, we help the people of New York preserve and enhance the quality of a wilderness environment while at the same time fostering a vibrant economy. The AEC is located on ESF's Huntington Wildlife Forest (HWF), a 6,000 ha field station in the central Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York.

Huntington Wildlife Forest

In 1932, the 6,000 ha Huntington Wildlife Forest (HWF) (latitude 44E 00" N, longitude 74E 13" W) was donated by Archer and Anna Huntington for the specific use of SUNY-ESF. Located in the Town of Newcomb, western forestEssex County and in the Town of Long Lake, eastern Hamilton County, New York, it lies near the geographic center of the Adirondack Park. The purpose of this gift was to establish a field station for the investigation of wildlife ecology and behavior.
