The Adirondack Center kicked off its inaugural lecture and concert series with "An Evening of Adirondack Songs & Stories with Dan Berggren" Thursday, Sept. 6. An award-winning musician and educator, Berggren has been entertaining audiences for 30 years with his brand of folk music that taps into his experiences being raised in the Adirondacks.

Last spring, Union purchased a building complex from the private conservation group Protect the Adirondacks! (PROTECT) that includes the former home of the noted Adirondack conservationist Paul Schaefer (1908-1996) and a modern addition that houses the Adirondack Research Library.

The decision to acquire the property on St. David's Lane and preserve and expand its use as an educational learning center reaffirms and builds upon the College's long connection to the Adirondacks and is consistent with President Ainlay's major initiative of capitalizing on Union's location.
