Adirondack Interpretive Center
A one-of-a-kind celebration of Adirondack natural and cultural history
The loons will be racing and chainsaws will be whirring this year. The day will include presentations from local experts, a demo from SUNY-ESFs woodsmen team and of course, the much anticipated rubber loon race! Sponsor a loon for a chance at winning one of our many exciting prizes from local Adirondack businesses! Visit our website for more information.
A huge part of Newcomb’s history revolves around logging and includes a very rich biological legacy as well. The two things that seem to be emblematic about Newcomb surfaced as Logging and Loons, the name of this weekend’s event.
