Bicycling Along the Erie Canal
You can't bicycle 366 miles along the Erie Canalway Trail from Buffalo to Albany without having a few stories to tell. In this Powerpoint presentation we will take you and your group on a "fun" journey across the state on this historic route. From history to flat tires, it's all a great adventure that we would love to share with you. So whether you are planning outings on the Erie Canalway Trail, or are just curious about it, we're here for you and can answer any questions you may have.
Short Hikes in Central New York
This 90 minute Powerpoint presentation highlights some of the short hikes in the Syracuse, Cortland and Ithaca Regions of New York. It explores trails that lead to beautiful woods, across brooks and streams and down to fantastic waterfalls. The trails range from paved and easy to moderate + woodsy trails. In this presentation there is something for every level of hiker. Much of the presentation is based on Roger's newest book, Short Hikes in the Finger Lakes Region which will be for sale at this presentation.
On the Trail – Safety and security on your next outing
What should you do if you come face-to-face with a Black Bear on the trail or in your own back yard? In this 90 minute Powerpoint presentation Master Naturalist and author Roger Fulton will provide the answer to that question and much more from critter encounters to reading trail markers and avoiding hazards. Much of this presentation is based on his newest book, Safe in the Woods – Tip, Techniques and Advice for Safety and Survival. Copies of that book and all of his New York trail guides will be for sale at this presentation.
The ADK Fire Tower Challenge – A Powerpoint Program
In conjunction with the release of our book 29 Fire Tower Trails in the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains, we also have a Powerpoint presentation for groups. Titled The ADK Fire Tower Challenge, we explain what the "Challenge" is, how we met it and we feature our top 10 favorite mountains from the easiest to the most patriotic. The presentation is free to most non-profit organizations, although we may need some mileage fees if we have to travel a long distance. It's about an hour long and then we leave time for questions and answers. We'll have books with us if anyone is interested.
If you have a group that might be interested, please contact us at: Roger@RogerFulton.com or via phone, afternoons and evenings at: 386-956-6089.
