Newcomb, NY, May 23, 2013 — The Adirondack Interpretive Center in Newcomb kicks off the summer season with its second rubber loon race and the return of a 100-year-old Adirondack guide boat on Saturday.
The two events will be the centerpiece activities of the Visitor Center's second annual Loons and Logs Day, celebrating the AIC's second year of operation as part of the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry's Newcomb Campus.
