Weekend in the Adirondacks, New York - June 2024

This weekend in the Adirondacks gives TRA members an opportunity to experience a place that Theodore Roosevelt loved. Over the course of four days and three nights, we will follow in TR’s footsteps. We will watch the birds he once recorded in field notes. We will visit Mt. Marcy and the same trail he descended on route to Buffalo to become president. We will discuss how the Adirondack mountains gave rise to his ideas about conservation.
