Of rivers, restoration and hope for all things wild

August 15, 2012
By Dan Plumley , Adirondack Wild

Hereclitus of Ephesus, pre-Socratic philosopher of Greece, was well known for his statement, "You never step into the same river twice" - an ephemeral allegory to our lives and the changing flow of water and its dynamic nature in the form of rivers, streams and brooks here in the Adirondacks and worldwide. Like wilderness, natural rivers and their flowing waters can seem at once always changing and yet timeless and our experiences of them are always different, always unique. In the Adirondack Park, securing the conservation of our state's designated wild, scenic and recreational rivers has been a pivotal goal under New York state law since 1972.
