Adirondack Lake Assessment Program (ALAP)

The Adirondack Watershed Institute (AWI) of Paul Smith’s College in partnership with Protect the Adirondacks! announces the first of our summer lecture series.

What is a typical Adirondack Lake and how does my lake compare?

Have you ever wondered what is going on in my Adirondack Lake?  Is this lake typical of other lakes in the Adirondacks?  What is an average Adirondack Lake?  What are the threats to Adirondack Lake water quality?  Is my lake threatened or receiving some sort of pollution from human sources?  How does an Adirondack lake age or become polluted?  Who is looking out for my lake?  What lakes are being tested in the Adirondacks and who is doing the testing?   If you would like to learn more about your lake and others in the Adirondack Park, then this lecture is for you.

When:  June 16th 9:30 AM

Where: Paul Smith’s College Joan Weill Student Center (Building #22 on map)   Pine Room on the shores of Lower St. Regis Lake.

Directions:  Paul Smith’s College is located at the corner of New York State Routes 30 & 86.  We are 12 miles north of Saranac Lake.  To find the Pine Room drive through the Colleges main gate between two grey stone walls.  Follow the road until you come to the first intersection and stop at the stop sign, the road splits into a T.  Turn left and follow this road past the Post Office and security building and you will come to a second stop sign.  Turn right and you will go around the large brick science building.  Park in the large parking lot on your left across from the Science building, at the far end nearest the lake.  Follow the path along the lake shore and you will come to the large Joan Weill Student Center located on the lake (Building #22 on map).  It has a large central tower that was part of the original hotel.  Go through the front doors and the Pine Room is at the far right end of this building.

If you are coming please call or email and leave a message with which lake you are affiliated with and how many people will be coming.
