SARANAC LAKE — There will be a screening of the video series “Curiously Adirondack,” produced by Josh Clement and Ed Kanze, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 3 at Saranac Village at Will Rogers.

These short documentaries, featuring human-interest subjects, will be of their favorite episodes as well as bloopers filmed during production.

“Curiously Adirondack” is watched on YouTube, Facebook and on Plattsburgh-based Mountain Lake PBS’s program Mountain Lake Journal, hosted by Thom Hallek. Episodes that have previously aired feature a Bloomingdale sawyer and his sawmill, a nonagenarian artist in Ausable Forms who began painting after WWII to settle his nerves, a hike up Ampersand Mountain, a trek into Avalance Pass, bullhead fishing, a historic general store, a women’s quilting group in Old Forge and the locks that provide a navigable route from the village of Saranac Lake to the Lower and Middle Lakes.

Josh Clement, formerly Interactive Producer for Mountain Lake PBS, runs his own independent production company, Josh Clement Productions, LLC. A lifelong Adirondack native, Josh is also a musician and songwriter.

Kanze is a naturalist, author, photographer and a licensed Adirondack guide specializing in nature. A former National Park Service Ranger and writer, he writes a column The Wild Side for the newsmagazine Adirondack Explorer. He was named Birder of the Year 2017 by Bird Watcher’s Digest and Swarovski Optic. For 30 years, his column All Things Natural has appeared in downstate and Connecticut newspapers.

As part of this program, Clement and Kanze will give an update on their fundraising campaign, through securing major sponsors and crowdfunding at Indigogo.com, for their fourth season of Curiously Adirondack.

This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
