"Through the Eyes of Stoddard"
Seneca Ray Stoddard (1844-1917) was one of the first to capture the Adirondacks through photographs. Take a brief tour and look into the works of a man whose images, writings and over all inspiration would forever influence the appreciation and protection of the Adirondacks.  Eight distinct areas from "Adapting the Land" to "Stoddard's Vision" are included in the tour of this exhibition.
NYS Standards: MST 4, 5; SS 1,3,4

*Group Size: We would like to limit each 45-minute tour to a group of 15 students. Larger student groups will be divided and will alternate their time between the exhibit and Adirondack hall. Therefore, groups with approximately 30 students should anticipate spending a total of 1.5 hours in the Museum.

Registration for this course begins September 5, 2012.
