HST 229 - The Adirondacks and American Environmental History

Course Units: 1
(Fall; Morris) The Adirondack region of northern New York Slate has been a proving ground for shifting American attitudes toward the environment, from early colonial (ears of wilderness, to intensive resource exploitation, and to efforts to conserve natural resources and preserve distinctive wilderness areas. This course will examine Adirondack environmental history and place it in the context of broader American environmental history. It will leverage Union College’s proximity to the region, and the resources of the Union College Kelly Adirondack Center, to offer students both intellectual and experiential engagement with the history of this distinctive place.
