2023 Living Lands Series Begins June 28

The LGLC's annual Living Lands Series of educational presentations begins June 28th with Pete Nelson and a discussion about the Underground Railroad in the Adirondacks with "The Mystery of Eagle Nest."

Was there an Underground Railroad route that ran from south of Lake George right through the heart of the Adirondacks? Was the famed Ned Buntline home of Eagle Nest near Blue Mountain Lake an Underground Railroad stop? For more than a century, rumors have suggested it was a path for escaped slaves traveling from Glens Falls to Canada and freedom. The circumstantial evidence for it is compelling; the arguments against it are equally strong. Can it be proven either way? Join North Country Community College lecturer Pete Nelson on a journey through history, lore and speculation that not only seeks to unravel the mystery of the original clearing at Eagle Lake, but also to shine a light on a diverse Adirondack past still little known.

The Living Lands Series will continue each Wednesday evening (except July 5), with topics including trees, beekeeping, the history of Fort William Henry, loons, bats, birds, turtles, and self-sufficiency in the Adirondacks.

Presentations are all free, but space is limited and registrations are required. For more information and to register, visit LGLC.org/living-lands.
