LAKE PLACID During the summer of 2006, Mike Prescott completed a paddle of the 170-mile Raquette River from its source at Blue Mountain Lake to Akwesasne, where the Raquette empties into the St. Lawrence River. Join Mike as he shares his own story, as well as the history of the rivers use from the days of logging, to the construction of several dams, and find out how the Raquette River Corridor Project works to promote responsible stewardship of this great River.
