Adirondack artist in residence

An exciting part of the Adirondack Interpretive Center’s programming this summer is the new Artist in Residence program, Art Along the Trails. Frances Gaffney, Adirondack artist, will be creating her inspiring pieces throughout the summer right at the AIC. She’ll be found somewhere along the trails every Sunday working on a different piece. Feel free to stop by and chat with her. On the last Saturday of each month, she’ll be leading drawing and watercolor workshops as well. If you’d like to join a workshop check out some additional information.

BIOBLITZ!

If you’re a science nut, you’ll be especially interested in the area’s first Bioblitz. ATBI Bioblitz will take place Sunday, June 29, beginning at 8:30 am. Join area scientists and naturalists at the Adirondack Interpretive Center in Newcomb. This large event will feature educational programing and semi-guided trips into the area's forests, bogs, and lakes for a fun day of nature exploration. The goals of the Bioblitz (hosted by the Adirondack All-Taxa Biodiversity Inventory of Paul Smith's College and SUNY ESF) will be to find and identify as many species of organisms as possible in one day! The focus of the 2014 Bioblitz will be to learn about Biotic Interaction, i.e. interactions between organisms. Bee expert Sam Droege and his colleagues will be hosting a workshop on bee identification and ecology Open to the general public, families are most welcome.

The Seagle Music Colony offers a very full schedule of familiar music programming during the summer months as well. For more information, read my blog from May 20, devoted entirely to the Seagle Music Colony.
