Adirondack Events: August 20-22, 2010

What is happening around the Adirondack Park this weekend? Here are just a few ideas. The forecast is clear weather for most of the weekend. So I hope that you are able to get outside and enjoy the last few weeks of summ.er

I was recently asked for ideas and summer camps that would teach children about fishing. To date I have not found an Adirondack summer program that is specifically for fishing. There are amazing people that are licensed guides that take children out and teach them to fish, whether for a day or a week. I will continue to search.
