Event description

Description

The Great Sacandaga Lake Advisory Council is pleased to announce the premiere of its recently completed documentary Harnessing Nature: Building the Great Sacandaga.

Nestled in the southern foothills of the majestic Adirondack Mountains is the Great Sacandaga Lake, the largest man-made body of water in New York State. In the early twentieth century, when the need for regulation of the upper Hudson River became obvious, the decision to build a reservoir in the Sacandaga Valley was an unpopular but necessary solution. This film tells the story of how the people of the valley had to sacrifice their homes, their farms and their livelihoods for the greater good. It is the story of heartbreak, rebirth and a remarkable engineering project in its own right.

There will be two viewings of Harnessing Nature: Building the Great Sacandaga on Saturday, November 25th at the Northville Central School Auditorium. The first show will begin at 3:00 pm and the second show will begin at 6:00 pm. Due to space constraints, pre-registration will be required to attend. When registering, please select either the 3:00 pm or 6:00 pm show.

If you have any questions, feel free to email GSLAC Treasurer Jason Kemper at jkemper@saratogacountyny.gov or Saratoga County Historian Lauren Roberts at lroberts@saratogacountyny.gov
