NPR's Brian Mann to visit Adirondack Museum

BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE - The past decade has been one of rapid transformation in the Adirondack Park. Join North Country Public Radio's Brian Mann for a discussion of this phenomenon and its implications for the future Monday, Aug. 2.

Part of the museum's Monday Evening Lecture series, the presentation will be held in the auditorium at 7:30 p.m. There is no charge for museum members and admission is $5 for non-members.

NCPR's Adirondack Bureau Chief, Mann has been on the front lines during 10 years of change in the Park. He will lead a discussion of how environmental stewardship and community sustainability are being changed by new technology, new ecological threats, and a new political landscape.

Mann has covered rural America for 20 years, working for public radio stations and networks from Alaska to New York. His award-winning stories appear regularly on National Public Radio's Morning Edition and All Things Considered. In 2005 and 2006, Mann won four separate Edward R. Murrow Awards.

In addition to his work for NCPR, Mann is a commentator for Mountain Lake Public Television. He is the author of Welcome to the Homeland: A Journey to the Rural Heart of America's Conservative Revolution. He lives in Saranac Lake with his wife and son.
