Genesee Valley Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club Chapter Meeting
Wednesday, March 10, 2010
Eisenhart Auditorium
Rochester Museum and Science Center
657 East Avenue

6:30 workshop is: “Making your home the solution to pollution: Tips and tricks you can do around the house to lessen your impact on stormwater pollution"

Stormwater pollution is the leading cause of water quality impairments to many of the urban waters in Monroe County. The Stormwater Coalition of Monroe County, comprised of most municipalities in the County, has developed a stormwater management program intended to reduce stormwater pollutants discharged to our area creeks and streams. Join fellow hiker & Winter 46'er Andy Sansone from the Monroe County Department of Environmental Services as he talks about the many things we can do around our home to lessen these impacts. From the potentially hazardous materials we purchase and use to the way we manage and maintain our urban landscape, all have potential to degrade or improve our water quality if done thoughtfully and with care.

7:30 Main Program: Larry Weill: Adventures in the Life of an Wilderness Park Ranger in the Adirondacks

Larry Weill, an ex-Wilderness Park Ranger and Adirondack author, will be with us for the March 10th Chapter Meeting. Weill spent three years living in a tent as the "trail ranger" in the West Canada Lakes Wilderness Area, which our Chapter has adopted for maintenance and improvement. He has written a series of three books about these years, from 1979-1981, when he covered the Northville-Lake Placid Trail from Piseco to the Cedar River Flow, and sometime beyond. His books include "Excuse Me, Sir... Your Socks are on Fire," "Pardon Me, Sir... There's a Moose in Your Tent," and most recently, "Forgive Me, Ma'am... Bears Don't Wear Blue." (This last book was written with his 15 year-old daughter, Kelly, who will also be in attendance.) These books are written with a comical slant, as the author often encountered novice hikers and campers who were completely unprepared for the region's expansive wilderness. His observations on human nature and the "mountain man ego" border on hysterical, and have had his readers in stitches for years.

The program will include an introduction with slide show, followed by a possible reading and questions/answer period. He will also gladly sign books for anyone interested at the conclusion of the program.

All are welcome! This event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the club hotline at 987-1717 or www.gvc-adk.org. The meeting is handicapped accessible and interpreters for the deaf are available by calling (585) 394-5856 one week before the meeting.
