Map: Natural Rock Dam Trail

The Moose River Plains Wild Forest is located in the Towns of Webb and Ohio in Herkimer County and the Towns of Arietta, Inlet, Long Lake, Lake Pleasant and Morehouse in Hamilton County. Numerous lakes and streams, including a portion of the traditional Adirondack canoe route from Old Forge to Saranac Lake, the South Branch of the Moose River, the Cedar River Flow, as well as numerous lakes and ponds, provide for a variety of water based recreational activities. During winter months snowmobiling is the major activity in this unit. The Limekiln Lake‐Cedar River Road provides a connection between the hamlets of Inlet and Indian Lake. DEC also maintains several other roads in the unit, and provides numerous individual camping sites along this road system. This provides a type of outdoor recreation between that of a developed campground and primitive tent camping.

Map: Lake Shore Marshes Wildlife Mangement Area

The Lake Shore Marshes Wildlife Management Area is located between Rochester and Oswego in the northeastern part of Wayne County. This complex is composed of several units, is bounded on the north by. Lake Ontario and contains approximately 6,179 acres of wetlands and adjacent uplands.

Development has included the construction of small water impoundments and parking areas at scenic locations overlooking areas used by migrating waterfowl. Other developments consist of boat access sites and trails available to fishermen, hunters, hikers and naturalists.

The area offers a unique combination of lake-bay marsh environments providing varied habitats for many species of fish, mammals, songbirds, shorebirds and waterfowl. Management objectives emphasize waterfowl utilization of this area. Public recreational uses of a non-conflicting nature is encouraged. Black ducks, mallards, wood ducks and teal are the principal waterfowl species along with a variety of diving ducks on the open water areas.

America’s Other Drug Problem

"Every week in Des Moines, Iowa, the employees of a small nonprofit collect bins of unexpired prescription drugs tossed out by nursing homes after residents died, moved out or no longer needed them. The drugs are given to patients who couldn’t otherwise afford them.

But travel 1,000 miles east to Long Island, New York, and you’ll find nursing homes flushing similar leftover drugs down the toilet, alarming state environmental regulators worried they’ll further contaminate the water supply."

"In Baltimore, Maryland, a massive incinerator burns up tons of the drugs each year — for a fee — from nursing homes across the Eastern seaboard."

"If you want to know why the nation’s health care costs are among the highest in the world, a good place to start is with what we throw away. Across the country, nursing homes routinely toss large quantities of perfectly good prescription medication: tablets for diabetes, syringes of blood thinners, pricey pills for psychosis and seizures."

Thousands sign up to clean sewage because they didn’t read the small print

"Do you read the terms and conditions? Probably not. No one does. And so, inevitably, 22,000 people have now found themselves legally bound to 1000 hours of community service, including, but not limited to, cleaning toilets at festivals, scraping chewing gum off the streets and “manually relieving sewer blockages”.

"The (hopefully) joke clause was inserted in the terms and conditions of Manchester-based wifi company Purple for a period of two weeks, “to illustrate the lack of consumer awareness of what they are signing up to when they access free wifi”. The company operates wifi hotspots for a number of brands, including Legoland, Outback Steakhouse and Pizza Express."
