The posts on this blog are contributions from staff members and volunteers at the Adirondack Interpretive Center (AIC).
Located in Newcomb, NY (practically at the heart of the Adirondacks), the Adirondack Interpretive Center opened in 1989 under the management of the Adirondack Park Agency (APA). Due to budget cuts, the APA had to cut funding for the centers in 2009 and in July 2010 a formal transfer of the center from the APA to the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry occurred.
Now under new management, we have certainly experienced a crash course in the management and day-to-day operation of a nature center, but we are already seeing increases in our visitation and provide extraordinary programming to a wide range of audiences.
This blog will be a place for staff members and volunteers at the AIC to record their experiences working at the center, everything from beavers they saw swimming in Rich Lake to personal reflections on the Adirondacks and nature in general.
