New wildlife guide
The Adirondack North Country Association has released a new regional travel guide prepared in partnership with Wildlife Conservation Society.
It's a guide intended for visitors who want to spot the region's wildlife, offering directions and maps to wildlife observation sites, and highlighting some of the Adirondack Park's animals and habitats.
The brochures will be distributed at chambers of commerce and popular tourist locations in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Jefferson, Lewis, Oneida, St. Lawrence, and Warren counties. The guide will also be available for download in English and French at www.adirondackscenicbyways.org, under the "publications" tab. (Click HERE)
ANCA, based in Saranac Lake, seeks to promote tourism in the Adirondacks, in large part by protecting and promoting its natural resources. The guidebook focusses on the "scenic byways" off the main state highways through the Adirondacks, including Route 30 from Northville to Malone.
The Wildlife Conservation Society took the lead role in the research, site selection, photography, mapping, and design of the new guidebook. Ecologist and author Jerry Jenkins, WCS Adirondack Program Director Zoe Smith, and Michale Glennon, the organization's science coordinator, collaborated on the project.
Funding has come from the Federal Highway Administration and state Department of Transportation's Scenic Byway Program.
