This week I am so delighted to welcome two extraordinary Earth-stewards, Tim and Peg Spencer-Behrendt. They are the co-founders and coordinators of the Shawangunk Nature Preserve, a 501©(3), forever wild, deep ecology learning and cultural center protecting and preserving over 500 acres of Alpine wetland forests and meadows in the southwest corner of the Adirondacks Mountains in New York State. Tim holds a bachelor's degree, two masters degrees and counseling and ministerial certification through Denison University, Ohio University, Garrett Theological Seminary, Indiana University and Colgate University. He has been a minister/counselor for over 50 years.
Originally from the dairy farm country of Westmoreland, NY, Peg studied music at SUNY Fredonia, taught Elementary music for a while and met Tim who was a Guidance Counselor and Minister. Dissatisfied with the culture of war, overconsumption and environmental degredation in the 1970's, she embarked with him on a psychic/spiritual journey to find a way of life that made more sense; where peace prevails, reverence for life is practiced, self-sufficiency is optimized, creativity through the arts is encouraged, and the environment is minimally impacted.
They have found their way over the last 40 years through trial and error, patience, determination, sacrifice, hard work, and minimal financial resources. The culmination is a lifestyle of integrity and a sanctuary of over 500 acres where all creatures, all plants, all things are respected and mostly left alone to follow their natural evolution.
Join me at 7 pm Eastern to hear their fascinating story and learn about their sacred and wonderful home of 40+ years.
This second week of June I'm bringing "on" some of my favorite poets and writers thru their words of praise and celebration of our wondrous and beauty-full Earth-home. I'll also share stories of Spring here on this sacred land that I'm blessed to call home, Lightspring Glen. And you're invited to call in to share June's joys from your corner of the world. We'll be joined by the wonderful woodland choristers of Shawangunk Preserve located in foothills of the Adirondacks, brought to us by the recording skills of Peggy Spencer-Behrendt. Tune in for all this & more!

With much more to talk about regarding the Adirondacks area in upstate New York this is another "episode".
Take a cruise on the W.W. Durant built by Captain Dean and run by he and his family. We're cruising on Raquette Lake with his son Jim, who is the chef along with Donna, the mom and Rachael a daugther. It's a family run business called Raquette Lake Navigation.
If you want to get the "lay of the land", history and a full day of fun, the Adirondack Museum, located at Blue Mountain Lake. Todd will give us a tour of some of the 22 buildings and activiites.
Gore Mountain, located near North Creek is a great place for skiing. But, when the weather doesn't warrant it, there is hiking, biking and a bit more. We'll hear about all from Emily Stanton.
A local winery in the Adirondacks? Sasha Pardy is the owner of Adirondack Winery located in Lake George. Although they do not own a vineyard, their wines are created from grapes coming from the vineyards in the US.
We're going back to the Adirondacks in upstate New York. The Great Camp Sagamore on Raquette Lake is both historic and ongoing. It's not like a children's sleepaway. Jeff Flagg will give us a scoop on the history, the famous adirondack chair, a tour and what is offered here.
A stay on Lake Pleasant is quite pleasant at Lake Pleasant Lodge. Peter Welch tells us about what you can experience there.
Celia's Table is this absolute darling eatery in Glens Falls. Pam, one of the owners, shares the history and menu.
The Hyde Collection, also in Glens Falls, is all about art. Paintings and sculptures are dominant. The latest exhibit is Georgia O'Keefe. Charles Guerin takes us on a tour.
We are up in the Adirondacks located in upstate New York, where I have done a road trip. Barry Finer owns Gore Mountain Alpaca Farm. You've seen the ads on tv....he answered it a long time ago.
North Creek is located near the much larger town town of Lake George but it certainly has it's charm. One place I dined was at Cafe Sarah's. Perhaps we can get some town gossip or nosh.
Lake George can be difficult to get around with a convention of bikers. How about a different bike, like a pedal cab? "Smitty", owner of Adirondack Pedal Cab will tell us how.
Saturday, Nov. 8, at 6:30 p.m. EST, Pete Klein will interview Phil Brown, editor of the monthly "Adirondack Explorer," about his new book: "Bob Marshall in the Adirondacks: Writings of a Pioneering Peak Bagger, Pond-Hopper and Wilderness Preservationist," edited by Phil Brown.
Bob Marshall in the Adirondacks collects nearly forty writings about the Adirondacks by one of America's greatest champions of wilderness. These articles are part of Adirondack history and part of the history of conservation. Bob Marshall embodied the spirit of wilderness, and fought for wilderness protection throughout the US. His passion for wilderness was nurtured in the Adirondack Mountains. They include numerous accounts of his pioneering hikes in the High Peaks and of his explorations in the vast wild region south of Cranberry Lake, spirited defenses of the forever wild Forest Preserve, and a charming sketch of guide Herb Clark. The articles reveal Marshall's deep personal connection to the Adirondacks, and the inspiration for his commitment to wilderness preservation. Also included are three articles by Bob's brother George Marshall; pieces by historian Phil G. Terrie, conservationist Paul Schaefer and writer Phil Brown; a humorous ode to peak-bagging by writer Bill McKibben; and, the Adirondack Council's proposed Bob Marshall Great Wilderness.
