Summer Programs Under Way at Adirondack Interpretive Center
Fly fishing and forestry are focuses of two new series
ESF has kicked off the summer season at the Adirondack Interpretive Center in Newcomb with a program for girls and young women interested in science, a series that explores the culture and natural history of fly fishing and a lecture series that examines the importance of forestry and the forest-products industry.
ESF took over programming at the Interpretive Center this year; the College is expanding the center's services to both visitors and area residents with programs that explore science, recreation, natural history and culture. The facility was formerly operated by the Adirondack Park Agency.
"We want to carry forward the legacy of the Adirondack Park Agency's interpretive program," said Paul Hai, an AEC educator who is planning programs for the interpretive center. "We want the facility to be more than a nature center. We want to offer educational and recreational programs that are based on a foundation of natural history and science."
Programs now under way are:
-The Nature of Fly Fishing: This series explores the natural history of fish and the culture of fly fishing and teaches fly-fishing techniques. Participants have an opportunity to fish waters in Huntington Wildlife Forest that are otherwise inaccessible to the public. Sessions are held periodically and participants can attend as often as they like.
- "WorkingForestsWorkingforYou": This series brings experts to the center for programs and presentations on various aspects of forestry and the forest products industry, from silviculture to forest management and pulp and paper mill operation. Lectures continue into November.
