The Laurentian Chapter is pleased to announce “Spring in the North Country”, the 2013 ADK Spring Outing.
The event will be based out of the campus of State University of New York at Potsdam, where inexpensive accommodation will be offered in student residences. A barbecue supper in nearby Lehman Park and a buffet-style banquet will be available at reasonable cost (See the Food/Lodging page).
We have planned a wide variety of outings, including hikes, paddling trips, road cycling, mountain biking, and more. The area is the St. Lawrence River Valley and the north slope of the Adirondacks. It includes lakes and rivers, waterfalls, small to medium-sized mountains, and a variety of cultural attractions. Children and young people will be especially welcome.
We can look forward to a performance of folk songs on Friday by chapter member and singer/songwriter Jamie Savage (www.jamiesavage.org) and a concert on Saturday evening by Adirondack folk musicians Dan Berggren, Dan Duggan, and Peggy Lynn (the latter will be in the Snell Music Theatre, the performing venue of the Crane School of Music). Astronomer and chapter member Jeff Miller will put on a planetarium show on Friday entitled “A Celestial Tour through the North Country Sky”.
Non-members as well as members of the ADK will be welcome. A registration cost of $25 per person ($10 in the case of trip leaders and $5 for children and youth under 18) will be the only mandatory cost. Meals, accommodations, and concert tickets are options. Registration will open approximately February 1.
