Ernest Williams, the William R. Kenan Professor of Biology, led his Adirondack class - Environmental Studies 220, Forever Wild: The Cultural and Natural Histories of the Adirondack Park - on a snowshoe hike into the wilderness near Old Forge on Feb. 10. The group hiked to a frozen-over beaver pond and identified tree species growing in the Adirondacks. It was a beautiful day for exploring the northern forest, with fresh snow and blue skies.
Students included Pat Bedard, Kevin Boettger, McKinley Brumback, Ana Fernandez-Menjivar, Gipper Gailor, Ethan Kelly, Nicole LaBarge, Mollie Major, David Morgan, Deanna Nappi, Matt Peterfreund, Mac Pivirotto, Doug Santoro, Nick Solano, and Reid Swartz. Professor of Philosophy Katheryn Doran and Director of the Writing Center Sharon Williams also made the trip.
