"Anothura troglodytes [Troglodytes troglodytes - Winter Wren]-No. 585, August 11, 1875. Rather common in the dense woods, but rarely seen ... it is often heard; however, for it possesses a gushing, ringing song, wonderfully loud for so small a creature; excepting the thrushes it is the sweetest songster in the Adirondac woods ..."
-- Teddy Roosevelt, age 16, from his pamphlet The Summer Birds of the Adirondacks in Franklin County, N.Y.

APA Research, Science and Planning Policy

With its mix of public and private lands, the Adirondack Park provides a rich landscape for the research of natural and cultural resources. Wetland StudyThroughout its more than a quarter-century of operation, the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) has built scientific, geographic, and planning databases to be able to serve the public more effectively and efficiently, to aid the decision-making process for other State agencies, local governments, organizations and landowners in the Park, and to encourage more research involvement within the Park by universities.
