  • Photo Trek with Ron Nolland and Penny Clute

Saturday, June 23, 2018 10-11:30 AM. 

Meet at Peace Point Park (next to City Marina on the waterfront at the foot of Dock Street)

Join professional photographers Penny Clute and Ron Nolland as we explore the area around Peace Point Park (next to the City Marina). There's lots to explore — the lake, the boaters and anglers, and the every-day things we don't pay attention to. Bring your camera and curiosity.

  • Water Pollution Control Plant

Saturday, July 21, 2018 10-11:30 AM.

“It‘s like walking through a chemistry set!“ Meet at the plant at 53 Green Street (parking available there or behind the Amtrak station). This is a rare opportunity to see how the City keeps the lake clean. Wear sturdy shoes and be prepared to climb some stairs, but the views from the top of the plant are spectacular.

  • Invasive Species along the Saranac River Trail

Saturday, July 28, 2018 10-11:30 AM.

Learn how to identify these unwelcome guests and learn some tips about controlling them in your environment.


  • And coming up in late Summer and early Fall...

Downtown Trek 2! The reaction to our Downtown Treks was great, so we‘re going to explore another aspect of downtown. Plans now are to visit 4-5 of the downtown churches focusing on their history and architecture.
