Sun, Mar 25: Tupper Triad Join us as we attempt to snowshoe all three small mountains (Goodman, Coney and Arab) that form this challenge. Together, that is 7.6 miles and about 1700 feet of ascent. Of course, participants can opt out after the first or second hike, as they see fit. (There’s no guarantee the leader will make it through all three either). Contact Blair Madore at 315-261-0751 or madorebf@potsdam.edu.

Sun, Mar 25: Outdoors - Indoors: Environmental Effects of Roads in the Adirondack Park and St. Lawrence Valley Potsdam Civic Center Community Room (above the police station), 7:30 PM. Roads and road traffic have a dramatic impact on the surrounding environment. Road ecologists work with transportation engineers and transportation departments to mitigate the negative effects of roadways. Tom Langen, Chair of Clarkson University’s Biology Department, will discuss how roads affect environmental quality in the Adirondack Park and St. Lawrence Valley and ways to improve road design and management.
