Students in Environmental Studies 220 (Forever Wild: The Cultural and Natural Histories of the Adirondacks) made a field trip to the Adirondack Park on Oct. 2-4. They were accompanied by Professor of English Onno Oerlemans, who teaches the class. The group visited museums in Blue Mountain Lake and Tupper Lake, went to the top of Whiteface Mountain, visited John Brown's Farm in North Elba, and spent the evening at Great Camp Wenonah, owned by Hamilton alumnus Jim Schoff '68.

The class was hosted by Anne Schoff, and the evening was spent discussing Adirondack issues with Dennis Phillips (a lawyer in Glens Falls who has been deeply involved with Adirondack property rights issues) and Ross Whaley, former director of the Adirondack Park Agency, and president emeritus of SUNY ESF.
