A Bronx Teen's First Taste of the North Woods

Listen to this story
This week on the 8 O'Clock Hour we're featuring audio diaries - first hand glimpses of our world. This morning, a first experience of the Adirondack Mountains. The Adirondacks have introduced millions of Americans to real wilderness. Often that first taste comes at summer camp or during a family outing. Marcus Pavon, a 17-year-old senior from the Bronx, first came to the north woods last summer as an Adirondack Nature Conservancy intern. Teenagers from New York City helped to fight invasive species in ponds and along roadsides throughout the park. Marcus joined the group and kept an audio diary of his experience. (Brian Mann produced Marcus' diary.)
