2. Removing illegal squatters from state islands
3. Promoting camping and other forms of recreation at Lake George
4. Taking photographs; Giving talks with slides; publishing pamphlets
5. Making friends… including FDR, Al Smith, George Foster Peabody, etc.
6. Blowing the Whistle…Making enemies…including Robert Moses
7. Giving talks to civic organizations
8. Joining organizations…and forming new ones, including the Lake George Protective Association and the New York Forest Preserve Association
9. Developing neighborhood associations (in Huddle Bay and Turtle Bay)
10. Protecting, and eventually purchasing, Dome Island ( 1939); then donating it to the Nature Conservancy (1956)

Many thanks to Ms. Apperson Brown for taking the time to visit Huletts Landing and share the important historical and environmental accomplishments of her great uncle.
