“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s
peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms
their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

— John Muir

Pace Law School Seminar

Pace Law School Seminar on The Forever Wild Provision: Adirondack Wild was invited by Nicholas A. Robinson, Pace’s Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law, to help young legal minds apply their research about the “forever wild” provision in our State Constitution in the field.


St. Lawrence

St. Lawrence University’s Adirondack Semester Program: Dan Plumley addressed the students: “Every one of you has the golden opportunity to help create the future of the Adirondack Park.  Ask yourself, ‘will you play a role and will it be wilder and better protected than it is today?’  We are still in process in the creation of the Adirondack Park, and your generation will ultimately determine its final design and whether, or not, it is to be protected into the future.  This simple truth is why I invest a significant portion of my time in outreach to colleges and universities statewide.”

St. Lawrence Students

Dr. Erik Backlkund is a professor in Environmental Studies who invited me out to meet the students for his class with the Adirondack Semester students. The St. Lawrence University Director of the Adirondack Semester is Cathy Shrady who is eager to work with Adirondack Wild on future interchange opportunities between with her students.

Braulio Acura

St. Lawrence University student Braulio Acura participated in our training. He is from the Bronx, NY and will graduate in 2013. When asked why are the Adirondacks and wild lands are important to him, Braulio said:  "One of the biggest things for me coming from the Bronx is the incredible contrast.  Here in the Adirondacks and in wilderness lands I can experience a place of no distractions unlike home.  Here natural beauty is in its prime and it is truly special and life changing."

Nick Schessl

 

St. Lawrence University student Nick Schessl also participated. He is from Waterloo, New York, and he said: "Here in the wilds of northern New York, roughing it, we get to truly hear ourselves think.  Our pace slows down to where we can find a place where we are much clearer in thought about what really matters in our lives and where we want to go.  In these wild lands, we can break down barriers and obstacles and figure out our clear path forward.  I would be so excited to take part in the more intensive wilderness stewardship training."
