Listen to this story
This winter, the Department of Environmental Conservation brought in new leadership for Region 5, which includes the eastern Adirondacks, the Champlain Valley and the Lake George Region.

Bob Stegemann joined the DEC after a long career as a forester and a planner. He takes over at a time when the DEC faces some big projects and challenges, ranging from the clean-up effort sparked by tropical storm Irene to the controversial Finch-Pruyn land deal.

Brian Mann caught up with Stegemann during a recent ski trip to Santanoni Great camp near Newcomb. Stegemann says he had a head-start on the Park's complex issues after working for years with International Paper.
