Our Wild Home: Six talks on the history and place of the Adirondacks

Lyceums flourished in the United States from the mid-19th century and were important in the development of adult education. Lecturers, musicians, singers and readers traveled the “lyceum circuit,” going from town to town to entertain, speak, or debate. The current Lyceum Series at the Grange continues this tradition with lectures and programs of interest to the community. (Whallonsburg Grange)

Forever Wild: A History of the Forest Preserve with Ken Hamm, DEC Forest Preserve staff attorney

In 1885, the land in the Adirondack Park was conserved and never to be put up for sale or lease. The park was given state constitutional protection in 1894, so that the state-owned lands within its bounds would be protected forever (‘forever wild’). The part of the under government control is referred to as the Adirondack Forest Preserve. This program will look at its origins and development over the last century.
