The Spruce Moose; A Publication of the Adirondack Ecological Center
In this issue of the Spruce Moose we take a look at the record use at AEC in 2000. While we always seem busy here, last year we were able to say that we were twice as busy as just three years before. User days at the AEC jumped from just over 3,000 in 1997 to more than 7,000 in 2000. AEC instructional programs reached a record 1,600 elementary, high school and college students, and professionals participating in credit courses, workshops and other learning experiences at the AEC. While ESF students, faculty and administration still make up a large percentage of our users, the number of visiting researchers and participants in a variety of instructional programs is a rapidly growing entity at the AEC. With this continuation of growth, that means the continuation of funding and investment. Take a look at the new members to the AEC as well as some members who are leaving. Finally, take a look at some of the ongoing research at the Huntington Wildlife Forest and the AEC, and don’t forget to check out the events and latest announcements.
