Adirondack Events: June 25-27 - School is Out!

By Diane Chase

For some of us, three members of my family, school is finally out. For myself, I have to now adjust my schedule to work around one husband and two children underfoot while I fit work into their summer vacation. It is all worth it as we continue to explore all corners of the Adirondacks.

Remember this weekend is FREE fishing days all around New York State. Enjoy all the ponds, streams and paddles the Adirondacks has to offer. No boat is required. Cast your line from any state-owned shoreline!
