Star Trek Original Series Set Tour in Ticonderoga is Unbelievable

July 4th, 2018 · Comments Off

The bridge of the the Starship Enterprise, as photographed in the authentic replica of the 1960′s Star Trek television show’s set, that exists in Ticonderoga.

Admit it. You’ve always wanted to sit in the Captain’s chair on the Starship Enterprise. Well you can do just that and more when you visit the original Star Trek series tour located in Ticonderoga. If you’re looking for a great ‘rainy day” experience for the entire family, look no further than the authentic replica of the 1960′s Star Trek television show’s set. The short drive is well worth the trip. I had a chance to visit recently and the experience was fantastic. The tour is about an hour but it is well worth the price of admission.

The building is located in the central part of downtown Ticonderoga and has plenty of parking.

The tour is located at 112 Montcalm street which is very easy to find in downtown Ticonderoga. I had the privilege of meeting James Cawley who was responsible for bringing the idea to Ticonderoga. He began collecting props and costumes from the original series in 1997 and acquired the original TOS Enterprise blueprints from William Ware Theiss when he interned on Star Trek: The Next Generation as a professional costume maker.

You can’t miss the Galileo shuttle craft that is outside.

Mr. Cawley then spent 15 years researching, crafting and refining his set replicas alongside other dedicated fans and craftspeople. Pouring over stills and frame captures from TOS and sourcing vintage materials and antiques, Cawley ensured that even the smallest details were accurately and lovingly reproduced.

The character “Gorn” from the episode Arena.

I have to say, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was completely fascinated by the level of detail and how authentic the set appeared to the original. You really get to experience what the actors themselves experienced.

The hallway of the Enterprise is curved.

You are allowed to take still pictures and the smallest of details have been reproduced. While not giving too much of the tour away, basically every room that was filmed in the original series on the Enterprise has been reproduced.

“Sick Bay” is replicated down to the upholstery on the beds.

“Engineering” has an authentic replica of the warp drive.

I especially enjoyed the full display case of actual uniforms and “props” used on the show. Recorders, phasers and assorted other gadgets are available to be viewed.

Many original props from the show, including actual uniforms worn by the actors, are on display.

So, when you visit Huletts Landing, be sure to take a drive north and see the Star Trek Original Series tour. I think you’ll really enjoy it and you can sit in the captain’s chair yourself!

The show was produced by Desilu studios and a real camera from the show is in the lobby.

LGLC Awarded Grant for Indian Brook and Northwest Bay Brook Initiative

June 30th, 2018 · Comments Off

A view from the Wing Pond property.

The Lake George Land Conservancy (LGLC) has been awarded a $20,000 matching grant from the Cloudsplitter Foundation to be used to leverage new donations for land protection efforts within its Indian Brook/Northwest Bay Brook Conservation Initiative.

Specifically, the Cloudsplitter grant award will be put towards the acquisition costs of the 159-acre Wing Pond property, purchased by the LGLC in December of 2016. This property, which is within the scope of the Conservation Initiative, includes 15 acres of sensitive wetlands, 750 feet of stream corridor, important habitat for birds and wildlife (including critical rattlesnake breeding habitat), and four-season recreational opportunities for nearby communities and the public.

The Conservation Initiative focuses on a 7,500-acre complex of wetlands, streams and undisturbed forests that are within the subwatersheds of two of the Lake George’s largest tributaries—Indian Brook and Northwest Bay Brook. Sensitive lands within this area are critical to filtering millions of gallons of water before it enters the lake each year, but only if left in their natural, healthy state.

For example, studies indicate that although Indian Brook is showing some impacts from development and other human activity, the watershed is still below the threshold of containing less than 10% of impervious surface, which is an indicator of overall health. Much of the watershed’s sensitive land is currently unprotected, leaving water quality vulnerable.

To date, the LGLC and partners have protected 2,384 acres and 4,150 feet of shoreline within this area, an investment of more than $2 million. All of these properties contribute to the community’s overall health by providing protection of wetlands and stream corridors, as well as allow for public recreational opportunities. The LGLC has created and maintains more than 15 miles of recreational trails within this area.

This is the first grant the LGLC has received from the Cloudsplitter Foundation, which works primarily to improve the environment, both physical and cultural, in the Adirondacks and to make life easier, healthier, and more rewarding for the people who live there.

By funding the Wing Pond project, the Cloudsplitter Foundation is helping the LGLC to not only be able to further its conservation mission in this sensitive area but also to build on partnerships with landowners, communities and New York State. This project in particular represents over four decades of conservation work, and offers great conservation value, increased community and recreational value, and, as a match, leverage towards the greater Initiative.

State Releases Harmful Algae Bloom Action Plan for Lake George

June 20th, 2018 · Comments Off

The state recently prepared an action plan for Lake George in regard to Harmful Algae Blooms (HAB’s).

Lake George was recently one of twelve New York lakes that was included in a study of harmful algae blooms. The 12 selected lakes represent a wide range of conditions, the goal was to identify factors that lead to Harmful Alage Blooms (HAB’s) in specific water bodies, and apply the information learned to other lakes facing similar threats. Each lake studied had an action plan prepared for that lake.

The good news from the report on Lake George:

“There have been no reported HABs in Lake George to date. Analyses conducted in this Action Plan provide insight into the processes that may potentially influence the formation of HABs in Lake George, and their possible spatial extents, durations, and intensities. Implementation of the mitigation actions recommended in this HABs Action Plan are expected to prevent the likelihood of blooms in Lake George.”


“Lake George is oligotrophic, rarely exhibits shoreline algal blooms, and there is no record of any HABs being observed or reported on the lake. Screening samples analyzed for algae, cyanobacteria, and algal toxin levels, including phycocyanin, and microcystin, by the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) since 2012 found low overall algae levels and low cyanobacteria levels at each of the sampling sites (NYSDEC 2015). Cyanobacteria have been measured in benthic samples associated with Cladophora and other filamentous algae, but they have not comprised the major taxa in the phytoplankton community in these samples.”

However there is always room for more testing and vigilance:

“In summary, Lake George tends to have very low chlorophyll-a concentrations. However, there are some locations that tend to have consistently higher (though still low) chlorophyll-a concentrations relative to the rest of the lake (Figure 16). These locations include: Sandy Bay, Cotton Island, Basin Bay, Huletts Landing, Heart Bay, Weeds Bay, Asas Island, Lenni-Lenape Island, Arcady Country Cub, and the north end of the Lake around Prison Island. In these shallow areas the remote sensing might be picking other interferences as opposed to chlorophyll-a concentrations. Additional analysis may be of interest to investigate these locations further.”
