As a conservationist Louis Marshall led efforts to protect the both the Adirondack and the Catskill Mountains. At the state's 1894 constitutional convention, he helped establish the New York Forest Preserve, and for years after, he helped defend it against encroachment. He was a member of the Adirondack Mountain Club and a trustee of the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks. Learn more about the contribution of other Jews, in a special presentation tonight, hosted by the Schroon North Hudson Historical Society.
