Capital District Trails Plan-Public Open House
The Capital District Transportation Committee (CDTC) has been working on developing a strategy to link together the various multi-use trails in Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer and Saratoga counties - a project called the  Capital District Trails Plan . Planning workshops in each county met last spring, and provided valuable input. CDTC has since been working on developing this strategy, and is now inviting stakeholders to the Public Open House to review the draft recommendations of that plan. Comments and suggestions gathered at this open house will be used to refine the strategy before it is finalized. Draft materials for review will include: proposed trail maps for Albany, Schenectady, Rensselaer and Saratoga counties; Trails Management Best Practices guide; estimates of anticipated economic benefits as well as ideas for branding and marketing of our regional trail system. Members of the project team—including the CDTC and planning and engineering consultants—will be in attendance to discuss the vision plan and take questions. The Public Open House will be on September 13th, 2018 between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. at the Albany Heritage Area Visitors Center. More info here .

Heritage Spotlight: John Burroughs' Slabsides
In 1895, naturalist John Burroughs built this rustic cabin sheathed in slabs, the bark-covered outer pieces of logs, as a retreat away from his Hudson River-fronted house a mile and a half away. It was here that the pioneering nature writer created some of his best-known essays, which eventually filled 25 books and had a profound impact on both literature and the nascent environmental movement. After his death in 1921, the cabin and surrounding land were conveyed to the non-profit John Burroughs Association. Over four miles of hiking trails wind throughout the dramatic rocky cliffs and pristine woods. The one-room cabin, which includes Adirondack-style furniture Burroughs crafted from wood he found nearby and his personal possessions, appears as it did when he welcomed such guests as Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, Henry Ford, and Thomas Edison. For the 19th Annual Hudson River Valley Ramble the John Burrough's Association will be hosting their Migrating Birds at John Burrough's Slabsides event, which will be on September 8th at 8:00 a.m. You can read more about this site in a recent article it was featured in here .
Project Spotlight: Henry Knox Cannon Trail Plaque at Crown Point
Through the efforts of the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area, a new replica of the bronze relief plaque was placed on a stone monument of the same dimensions as the original stone in Crown Point, including being from the same quarry. The Henry Knox Cannon Trail follows the route that Colonel Henry Knox used to transport 59 cannons from Crown Point and Fort Ticonderoga to Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the winter of 1775-76. Fifty-six monuments were installed along the route in 1927 to commemorate the arduous 56-day journey. The Crown Point plaque was left out of the original route in 1926, but historical evidence supports its inclusion in the trail. Thirty of the granite monuments and bronze plaques mark the route in New York from Fort Ticonderoga to the Massachusetts border near Hillsdale. Starting near Great Barrington, 26 monuments mark the trail in Massachusetts. The installation of these monuments represents one of the earliest heritage trails created in the United States.
