Last Saturday, Tim Albright led a group of hikers through John Boyd Thacher State Park. Along their journey, Albright taught the group about the history of the area, from millions of years ago to the present.
NEW SCOTLAND —John Boyd Thacher State Park will get $3.8 million for its new visitors’ center, the governor’s office announced on Tuesday. The Helderberg park is to receive almost half of $8.7 million allocated to Capital Region parks.
The first hearing on Thacher's inaugural master plan elicited kudos and concerns, the most troubling from a geologist who said building a visitors' center close to the edge of the escarpment is unwise.
