LAKE PLACID - When the glaciers receded for the final time over 10,000 years ago they left behind their legacy in the landscape. A fascinating pre-historic time can be decoded by knowing where and how to look for these landforms that lay hidden under forest, field, and even our villages. Workshop participants will be led on a narrative journey from the Adirondack Loj to Saranac Lake, stopping at several glacial landforms along the way. So come and learn about ancient lake beds, deltas, eskers, kettle holes, kames, and other clues to the ice age.
This ADK Naturalist Series Workshop will be held Saturday, June 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Adirondack Loj, located at Heart Lake. Bring your own lunch or a trail lunch can be provided upon request. Directions and other pertinent information will be sent out to participants. All participants must pre-register by calling 523-3441. Cost is $30 for members/$35 non-members.
