August 24: Marion River Carry

The kind permission of a private landowner will allow us to explore some of the route of the old Marion River Railroad, doubly celebrated at the Adirondack Experience in two vintage and perennially popular exhibits. We may have to slosh through shallow water in a place or two as we enjoy the history and natural history of the area. Waterproof shoes are recommended for this walk.

Meet Ed Kanze and Museum staff outside the front door of the Adirondack Experience to convoy to the unmarked trailhead.

Meet at the ADKX Visitor Center at 1:00 PM

What to Bring: Proper footwear for a hike like sneakers or boots, appropriate clothing, water and snacks if desired.

Registration required for this hike. Directions and more information will be sent once you register. Click HERE to register

Ed Kanze is a 1978 graduate of Middlebury College. He earned a B.A. in Geography and won the Bermas Prize for highest departmental honors. He lives with his wife and two children on 18 acres along the Saranac River.

In April 2005, at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, Ed’s essay about the passenger pigeon, “In Search Of Something Lost,” was named by the John Burroughs Association as the Outstanding Published Natural History Essay of 2004.  The same essay earned a gold medal in environmental writing from the International Regional Magazine Association. PBS featured Ed and his nature writing in the documentary, “The Adirondacks.”  His essays and articles have appeared in Adirondack Life, Audubon, Birder’s World, The Conservationist, Utne Reader, and many more.

Ed has published five books. His most recent, Over The Mountain And Home Again: Journeys Of An Adirondack Naturalist brings together stories of nature and adventure in New York State’s Adirondack Park, the largest park in the Lower 48.
