Education, conversation at Newcomb center

Listen to this story
The Adirondack Park's visitor interpretive centers are open again this summer, despite the APA's decision last year to eliminate their funding. Keeping the two centers open, at Paul Smiths and in Newcomb, required complicated negotiations through the winter and new partnerships.

Now the two projects have emerged with very different approaches and goals. Yesterday, Nora Flaherty reported on the private effort to revitalize the VIC at Paul Smiths. This morning, Brian Mann has the story of the VIC in Newcomb, where the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry hopes to use the facility as a new meeting ground for education and conversation.
