LGLC Announces its 2017 Season of Lake Talks: Living Lands

June 15th, 2017 · No Comments

“Beekeeping and Honeymaking” with Tom Wells will be one of the talks in this years Living Lands lecture series by the Lake George Land Conservancy.

The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) is kicking off its 2017 Lake Talks Series: Living Lands with Maple Sugaring, on Wednesday, June 28 at 5:30 pm. Local Bolton resident Sam Caldwell of Bixby’s Best will explain the art of maple sugaring and the creation of traditional Adirondack maple syrup.

The LGLC’s weekly Living Lands-themed presentations will take an exclusive and up-close look at the wildlife and people who utilize the land of Lake George and the Adirondacks, past and present.

Held at the LGLC office in Bolton Landing, the family-friendly presentations are free and open to the public, though registration is strongly recommended because of limited seating. Presentations will be held each Wednesday evening (except for July 5) starting June 28th through August 16th.

New this year, the Lakeside Lodge and Grille has generously partnered with the LGLC for an exclusive deal for Living Lands participants. At every unique talk this summer, each attendee will be given a date-specific “Talk Ticket” that can be used that evening at Lakeside Lodge and Grille. When presented, the restaurant will donate 10% of the total meal cost back to the LGLC.

In addition, attendees can add their name to a drawing to win a Lakeside Lodge and Grille gift certificate. The drawing will be held at the conclusion of the Living Lands Series. Attendees can enter their name each time they come to a presentation, so odds of winning increase with each attendance.

Following the maple sugaring talk, other presentations include “Wild Wolves” with Steve Hall of the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge; “Meet the Raptors of the Adirondacks” with Nancy Kimball; “Beekeeping and Honeymaking” with Tom Wells, owner of Pleasant Valley Apiaries; “The Battle of Lake George” historical talk with author & historian William Griffith; “Adirondack Hunting Traditions” with Dan Ladd; and “Timber Rattlesnakes” with Dr. Bill Brown, Vertebrate Zoologist and Herpetologist.
