Out of an abunance of caution the March 3 meeting is canceled due to the poor weather forecast. See you in April

TUESDAY, March 3 “FRACKING” will be discussed by Jane Fuscilli from the Sierra Club. Wherever there is a shale formation underground, fracking can take place. Chemicals are involved as well as explosions to break up the rocks. This has been ongoing in NY State and has had adverse effects on property owners, parks as well as our environment. Please come to the meeting for this very important powerpoint presentation.

Lanny Wexler, a long time member of ADK will present his nine day Great Allegheny Passage cycle ride between Pittsburgh and Washington DC.  From the forks of the Ohio River to the tidewater of the Potomac- the 150mile Great Allegheny Passage and 184.5mile Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Towpath linked together to create an unparalleled biking adventure. Together they form the longest hiking/biking trail in the nation. Every year thousands of cyclists take this ride that National Geographic calls “an American classic.” Please come to see this slide presentation of a very exciting, unique and full of adventure trip of a lifetime.
