Audio Postcard from the Sacandaga River

It's possible to grow up--and grow old--in a North Country town, never quite noticing its treasures. Paul Wilbur was raised in Speculator, in the woods and bogs along the Sacandaga River. At the age of seventy, he volunteered to lead construction of a community park and a nature trail. The project reconnected him with his community and with his own history. Brian Mann spent a morning with Paul Wilbur and sends this audio postcard.

Directions to the Sacandaga River Community Park: Take Rt. 30 to the four corners in Speculator. South of the intersection, look for the Lemon Tree restaraunt. Across the road, you'll see the community recreation area and the park entrance.  Go to full article
