What's New

International Paper awarded the Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District a grant to revitalize the nature trail system behind their Lake Pleasant office. A welcome kiosk and three Adirondack Ecostations were designed and installed. The revitalizations will increase visitor awareness of a forest ecosystem through interpretative signs and create a sense of community as family, friends, students, and organizations come together to enjoy a walk in the woods. Hiking tours for schools or organizations may be scheduled with the District. The public is welcome to take a self guided tour of the Alien Invasion, What Lies Beneath, and Signs in the Woods Ecostations.
