2017 Summer Season Schedule

* The 2017 ANNUAL MEETING took place on Saturday, July 22. The hghlight of the meeting was the presentation by Tom Lincoln, supervising engineer on the Kingdom Dam reconstruction project (from the DIvision of Operations, DEC). He presented an overview of, and Powerpoint presentation on, the Kingdom Dam project -- explaining how and why it progressed as it did. He also answered questions about the project. You can hear his full and lengthy presentation here: TOM LINCOLN PRESENTATION (MP3 Audio File). For some of the historical images Lincoln utilized in his Powerpoint presentation, see: KINGDOM DAM HISTORICAL PHOTOS. We will soon be posting a full recording of the meeting.

We are following up on the concerns expressed at the meeting: water level of the pond, milfoil control, road conditions around the dam, and more. Updates on progress on these matters will be posted here.

Sunset at Lincoln Pond
(Helen Phinney, Aug. 11, 1971)

A kingfisher skims the water -
the water reflecting the
hills and sky
Pools of pink and purple.

Now the colors fade.
The hills take on a deep blue.
The water becomes shimmering
glass - shimmering - moving -
Blue clouds, now, and
darker water - a bird calls
in the trees behind me.

Now all is muted and quiet,
Colors, water - all.
