BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE — Join the Adirondack Museum for its next Cabin Fever Sunday program — “Whose Land Is This?” — on Sunday, Feb. 10.
This program will explore the ancient and complex claims of different groups of people to the Adirondacks. From Native Americans, to generational year-round residents, to second home owners, to New York State, learn how different groups define ownership in the Adirondacks, and what this continuing debate means for the future of the Park. Join Professor Philip Terrie and former Adirondack Park Agency Chairman John Collins as they discuss who really owns this land.
Terrie is a Professor Emeritus of American Culture Studies, English, and Environmental Studies at Bowling Green State University Bowling Green, Ohio. John Collins is a former schoolteacher, Adirondack Park Agency Chairman, Adirondack Museum director, and co-founder of the Residents Committee to Protect the Adirondacks.
Held in the museum’s auditorium, the program will begin at 1:30 p.m. Cabin Fever Sundays are offered at no charge to museum members or children of elementary school age and younger. The fee for non-members is $5.00. For additional information, please call (518) 352-7311, ext. 128 or visit www.adkmuseum.org.
